    I noticed this while in Barnsley today.

    There are some signs on the building that suggest the offices were formely home to Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and the building is now vacant. It looks like it has been for some time. From what I can find online, it looks like the building may have once been home to South Yorkshire County Council and was due for demolition in 2007 / 2008.

    Has anyone had a chance to have a sniff around?

    this is joined to the multi storey car park so possible access there. Be careful though as during the day there is a security gaurd on duty in the market service area underneath

    You can actually drive straight into the Metropolitan Centre's own car park via an access road on Eldon Street and right up to the building - I tried it over the weekend. I think the car park is only used by shoppers now as there are pay and display machines.

    There is another building next door with a "TEC" sign on it - possibly an ex-college site?

    There is no security on site as far as I could see. Access could be tricky though as the windows look pretty well sealed up, although some of the upper windows are open which would suggest someone has been in already at some point!

    Not sure if access is possible via the multi-storey car park next door but there is a footbridge between.

    Quick map of the area...
