    Hi all went to Hallam towers last night
    This was my first ever urbex with a couple of friends
    and I'd say it wen pretty well with no hassle from anyone

    Iv see. This covered a lot so
    Here is a little background on this site

    Designed by Nelson Foley of the Trust House Architectural Department, construction started in 1963 at a cost of £1 million. The Hallam Tower Hotel, owned by Trust Houses Group Ltd, opened on 24th March 1965.

    With the takeover of Trust Houses Group Ltd by Forte Holdings in 1970 the building came under the ownership of Trust House Forte. By 1986 the building was known as the Hallam Tower Post House Hotel[3] and later became known as the Forte Crest Sheffield and the Posthouse Sheffield.

    In 2001, the hotel became the Holiday Inn Sheffield West, eventually closing on 18 April 2004.

    Since its closure the building has stood empty, although planning permission was granted in 2009 for a redevelopment of the tower into residential units

    So here's what I found sorry about picture quality I only have my iphone


    Main entrance is a wreck!

    Conveyor belt

    Stock notice from Justin Bedford

    Main stairway

    Found this at the top of the stairs (naturally we did)

    Found these old phone booths on this floor

    As we got higher up to where the rooms were we found there wasn't much left
    All corridors are pretty much like these

    Managed to find an open elevator with phones still attached

    As we got higher we entered the roof/service room

    Elevator machinery

    After this room we found we was at the top and had completed Hallam towers
    On the descend we decided to check out the graffiti and I'm sorry to say this is what we found ...


    Council have been in and painted over all the Graffiti :(

    So that's the end of my report I hope you found it interesting

    Comments welcome :)
