    Well this place had been done before by a few people and to be fair it had never jumped out at me as something perticualy epic. A few weeks back me and Dweeb were in sheff for the day and he suggested we check it out as he had had no luck on a few previous attempts. Once he explained the problem i knew what was needed and we got in without too much worry, later returning with rooks for more!

    Now i must say we thought it would be quite good but once in we realised had TOTALY underestimated it. It is simply one of the best time warps ive ever seen. You could be stepping straight back into the 1940s! Theres not a sniff of anything post 1960s in the whole place! It appears they just never updated anything. Its amazing to belive it was still up and running a few years ago as it feels like a musem set! I really cant explain everything we found in there or id be here all night but this example i think sums it up well.

    On the back of one door there is a notice dated 1948, which is, its self, amazing! but look underneath where the notice has peeled off.. "They Talked - It Happened" Yes thats a world war two poster still up on the wall... and thats not the only one, most defiantly not the only one! :eek:
