    Used to be a big dead-cert explore in Sheff with easy access. They've now racked up the security with spiked aluminium fences round it. The demo contractors are in there and starting the process of stripping the place ready for demo. If you've not been round already you're going to struggle now...

    Process of stripping it...
    Has that not already been done by the locals?

    Yeh I went past today. Usual access properly secured with metal. Holes in fence patched with sheet metal and palisade security fencing installed. Tbh though I wouldn't be surprised if the council or police have made them do it due to the amount of drug users that use it.

    Think it's more to do with the impending demo of the site mate...

    About bloody time! That said, it's one of the few places where I actually like the graffiti.

    @AndyK That might in fact be the only thing holding the place together any-more!

    Don't know about demo but it's more difficult to get in now. They have erected new secca fencing etc. I'm sure there is a way in but just not the old routes.

    Pretty sure they are stripping it in preparation for demo. May take some time as it's a big site. More difficult to get in. Proper pallasade fencing rather than yer Heras fencing round at the front. Not seen a report from here for a while....

    I will try and get one up when I get time, I only took some basic shots though.

    Ive just remembered that there is a skip just in front of the gate now, so maybe they are removing some of the interior now. It will be a long job though.
