    First and foremost thanks to tablets for the info.

    Information on Deacon House is somewhat thin. The ever useful Sheffield Forum mentions the Midland Bank having offices there in the 1970s and it appears that HSBC owned the building until it closed in early 2006. HSBC held a proportion of the Midland Bank from the late eighties and this grew until it acquired full ownership in 1992. In 1999 various banks owned by HSBC were rebranded under the umbrella name HSBC Bank plc. The owners promised widespread refurbishment in 2007 but this plan didn't come to fruition, although the greater area is seeing significant investment at the moment in the form of a new market for the city. The estate agents booklet for the site can be seen here: http://docs.novaloca.com/50_73389_633512166346086217.pdf
    This contains some brief specifications for those who are interested. I missed out on an external shot in my excitement and there are also a number of them in that booklet (although it's not a looker to be honest). I explored with a couple of explorers who don't use the forums actively. It was a pretty decent wander although the place has seen some serious damage by the metal faeries and is beginning to flood on the ground floor.

    Thanks for looking and as always constructive criticism is welcome, I know it's a bit of a thin site but I quite enjoyed it and it's hopefully some of you will too!​
