    Hi everybody, I've been ghosting this site for ages now but decided to make an account and start posting photos I've took from my visits!

    So without further ado, my first report - Hallam Towers.

    After visiting a few sites in Lincolnshire (where I am currently studying), it was time for me to pay my hometown a visit, or more specifically; to see my mum and explore a few places on my list.

    The day started early and we headed towards the Sheffield Court Rooms - once finding our access point, we soon found that we were very unprepared and unworthy of entering, putting a great big sulk on my face. Whether it's just me who was overwhelmed by the difficulty, I'll never know!
    (Just a little note - I still haven't been, so anybody interested in recruiting a little 'un to their team is more than welcome to get in touch with me ;) )

    So, with sulks all round, we got back in the car and ventured on.
    We soon arrived at Hallam Towers and made our entry into the wreckage. Climbing up the different floors, we soon realised how much better the court-rooms would have been but ignoring the strong vibes of disappointed, went on.
    Honestly, haven't got much to say about this place, other than - it's very...dead.

    I hope you enjoy my very first report and any feedback on my court-room problem is appreciated haha!

    So, here are a few of the shots I took -

    Hope you"ve managed to clean all the Azzy off yourselves from here :D

    Most people do a welcome introduction to the Forum, before a mini-report, but if you wanna do it in reverse no worries :)

    Sheffield Courts eh that"s a tough one...really ? maybe you should have taken your Mother along for access advice :D Or used the tools at your ......"Disposal" if you"re Wheelie clever ahem ;)

    Razstafarian - Dammit, let's forget about that shall we? ;)
    Stranton - Yes! I googled it and found that, really like the quote!
    ACID-REFLUX - Didn't even occur to me, my apologies! I think because I've been on here so long without an account I just forgot haha! And hey, I did all that malarky, honestly...still failed...guess it is just me :( We shall try again in a few week, I'll bring my balls with my next time and actually get in haha

    Interesting that the rooftop view is the only thing worth going for and you seem to have missed that off the report.

    I think your name sums this place up very well. Been a while since I've been in here.

    No, I didn't purposefully miss it! I enjoyed looking around the insides, the rooftop didn't do much for me other than the views
