    My first time out in about 6 months and it felt good being back up on a rooftop (iQuarter excluded as I'm up there once every few weeks or so) and sneaking round a derp.

    I missed out the first time round when some of the other Sheffield lads did this one last year but finally managed it with tablets one April night '15. It took us a fair amount of dicking about to find our way up to the roof. There wasn't much to see inside but the brutalist concrete monolith on the roof was the main prize.

    "Castle Market is a former indoor market in Sheffield city centre, England. The building lies in the north east of the present city centre, by the River Don, and is built on top of the remains of Sheffield Castle"
    "The oldest part of the building is the Fish and Vegetable Market, constructed in the inter-war period. The remainder of the building was constructed by J. L. Womersley and Andrew Darbyshire between 1960 and 1965. It has two main floors, both of which included small shops and stalls, and each accessible from street level. Other stores faced on to the surrounding streets, while a gallery found a storey above the main part of the market contained several more shops, and access to an office building surmounting the structure. The gallery is linked by bridges across Exchange Street to further above-ground shopping areas."
    "The whole Castle markets area has been the subject of redevelopment proposals since the 1980s, with part of the adjacent area being redeveloped with a hotel, multi-storey car park and several new office blocks in a development known as "The Square" by Carillion. The original scheme to replace the markets fell victim to the 1990s recession. A new markets building opened on The Moor in 2013, which is a partnership between the council and private developers. The multi-storey car park for the Moor Market scheme has been built on Eyre Street.
    Part of the council's current plans for the Castle Market is to demolish the existing complex[1] and open up a pedestrian route from the city centre to the Victoria Docks area and the new Riverside Quarter, now that the ring road has been diverted."
