Catch Bar Lane and Leppings Lane Junction, Hillsborough, Sheffield
Catch Bar Lane and Leppings Lane Junction, Hillsborough, Sheffield
The cars in the picture are on Catch Bar Lane ... Leppings Lane runs across from top right to bottom left. Just off picture to the left, Leppings Lane runs past Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough Ground. Leppings Lane was originally Leapings Lane which got its name from some nearby Stepping Stones over the River Don. I don't think anybody has a satisfactory answer to what Catch Bar Lane is named after ... However, at September 2011, Martin Speck has supplied an answer, which is ... A catch bar, or side bar is a subsidiary toll gate or bar used to prevent people evading tolls by leaving a turnpike road before they reached the main tollhouse (sometimes called a Weigh House). Thanks Martin.
