1. The History
Can find very little history on this place. The former Distribution Warehouse is in an area known as Hallamshire Works on Boyland Street, in the Neepsend district of Sheffield on a 1.8-acre site. The site was well-placed due to its direct access into Sheffield city centre and out to the M1 Motorway at Junction 36. A Street View capture from October 2014 shows the site being used by C&D Transport Express. A Google search also turns up A&E Transport Ltd, also a Road Haulage Services company, to be based here too. A Companies House search confirms that they were one and the same and owned by the same directors, although A&E predates C&D.

They appear to have vacated the site in early 2016 as the premises were being advertised by estate agents Frank Knight in March 2016. The photographs from back then show the site to be clean, tidy and secure and on offer at an annual rental of £67,000. After then, with lots of other choices in terms of factory space rental in the area, the site seems to have been unoccupied. However, while the brochure pictures of the site show no trailers in the yard, today there are five left behind, hinting the premises may have subsequently been let out.

2. The Explore
In the good old days Sheffield had a hat-trick of great explores (The former Law Courts, George Barnsley’s and the adjacent Cannon Brewery). Pickings are now pretty slim in the Steel City and we’re now down to here and Eagle Works just down the road in this neck of the woods. It’s a far cry from the halcyon days of exploring in Sheffield. However, with a bit of time to kill and the weather pretty decent for an October afternoon, I decided to head over here, with fairly low expectations. It’s been empty for a while and a regular hangout for the skateboarders and the graff artists. It’s a really easy in and relaxed explore, although as a former distribution centre, it’s spare in terms of fixtures and fitting and is effectively just a big empty factory space. That said, it’s quite photogenic with the graff and the crane is also a point of interest and worth half-an-hour of your time.

Nice one, I happen to like graffiti if in the right place, and I`d say big open derelict walls, is perfect for it. Natural decay too, is very nice. This place looks huge. :cool:

Was there a way into the old brewery? would love to see in there too.

Some decent graff in here. Seem to remember that there were a gig / music video shoot in here not so long back...

Cheers CJ. The old Cannon Brewery used to be an easy in. Now it's all razor-wired up. So - not impossible but a lot more difficult is probably the best way to put it...

With all that graffiti maybe they should open this as a gallery and make some money, those deserve some exposure thanks good pics.
