   There were two stations in the Wicker area. The Victoria station (Great Central Railway) was at high level and accessed by stairs and a lift from The Wicker. The other station was Wicker Station and was solely a goods station for the Midland Railway used before they built their passenger line into Sheffield along with the Midland Station, which is on, and always has been on, Sheaf Street.

Pond street is now the bus station, however the present midland railway station was previously called Pond street station.

"The station was opened in 1870 by the Midland Railway and was the fifth and last station to be built in Sheffield's city centre. Prior to 1949 the station was called Sheffield Pond Street. The station was built on the "New Line" which ran between Grimesthorpe Junction, on the former Sheffield and Rotherham Railway, and Tapton Junction, just north of Chesterfield.This new line replaced the previous route to London, which ran from Sheffield Wicker Station via Rotherham (Masborough)."

    Whilst researching (that's posh for googling) this, I came across a very interesting site that may be of some help - if not then it's an interesting site anyhow.
     Have a look at "skyscraper city - sheffield metro". The site covers architecture and city development around the world it's a huge site so concentrate on the Sheffield section.
     Does anyone think it worth posting the problem on there.

Google earth view of wicker arches area looking north - there are similar buildings and it looks like plenty of buildings would have been demolished for road interchange

As thy said in the 'Full Monty" Sheffield was a city "On the move"

Go to here and follow listed building links to 'wicker arches' mostrly demolished in 1989 apparently

I cannot find any other reference to the Midland Station as 'Pond Street Station' (Denn, where does your quote come from?).

In the Sheffield Local Register (a digest of local newspaper stories, up tp 1908) there are many references to this station, always calling it the Midland Station. There was a Pond Street Goods Yard, for 'minerals', listed in White's 1919/20 Directory, but the passenger station was always the other side of Sheaf Street.
