    Does anyone have any info on these sites on Cambridge Street In Sheffield. I am interested in accessing them and if anyone has any previous experience of these sites, all adjacent to each other on Cambridge Street, the history is very interesting indeed. Leah Works is a set of former shops and workshops around a square, and and the Cambridge Arcade has been many things over the years, but looks to be an intriguing layout of buildings. The former barleycorn hotel became Cutlers bar and was closed in the last two years, but is a building over 100 years old. There is also a former Sunday School Church in the network of old buildings there, bricked up from the front. All seem boarded up from the front and back but wondering if anyone has visited yet??

    I've tried to get into Leah's Yard in the past but have been spotted by people at the Sportsman nextdoor... Not tried that area for a while, might have to give it another go soon, certainly is an interesting set of buildings.
    ...Actually, looking on Streetview at the front of the bricked up building, which I assume is the 'Sunday school' you speak of, this one is literally just the front wall; from round the back it's just a big hole where the basement would have been, full of old beams and stuff.

    Yes its just the front wall, the area behind is demolished....explored it recently and a few beams and stonework remain but not much to see.
    Its the LEAH WORKS side that interests me, but access seems very difficult. However, anyone wanting to explore message me......its a network of rooms and buildings with a central courtyard and bound to be quite fascinating....
