    The History

    Sheffield Tramway was an extensive tramway network serving the English city of Sheffield and its suburbs.

    The first tramway line, horse-drawn, opened in 1873 between Lady's Bridge and Attercliffe, subsequently extended to Brightside and Tinsley. Routes were built to Heeley, where a tram depot was built,Nether Edge and Hillsborough.

    In 1899, the first electric tram ran between Nether Edge and Tinsley. By 1902 all the routes were electrified. By 1910 the network covered 39 miles, by 1951 48 miles.

    The last trams ran between Leopold Street to Beauchief and Tinsley on 8 October 1960—three Sheffield trams were subsequently preserved at the National Tramway Museum in Crich.

    The Tram shed itself isn’t the most exciting architectural site that is unless you are into graffiti. This very long brick-built building is what used to be Attercliffe Tram Sheds. It was used for servicing the city’s trams. The system closed on 8th October 1960 and has been derelict since the early 60s. The trams returned in 1994 in the shape of Supertram costing £240 million pounds. The new Supertram depot sits just over the fence next to the old one.

    The Explore

    One a whistle stop tour of up norf myself and @slayaaaa popped into see my mate who runs a garage in Sheffield and his missus told us about this one. Deffo worth checking out if you like a spot of graffiti in an old building. It was dark when we got there and this gave a great look to the graffiti. Some of the characters there where life like, almost amazing that they are done with paint and are not actual pictures


    Hope you like the pics

    You might want to check out www.facebook.com/coloquixart that's the artist and there's lots of pieces to view on there. Sometimes they shorten their name to 'CLQX' to keep everyone on their toes ;-)
