History

Sheffield's Attercliffe Tram Sheds have been in use since 1873, when the trams were drawn by horses. The first line on the network was between Attercliffe and Lady's Bridge. Originally, it was operated by the Sheffield Tramways Company, but the city council took over the trams in 1896, after legal changes permitted local authorities to run trams.

In 1899, the network went electric, and it ran until 1960. At its peak, there were 100 miles of tramline.

The Tramway was then closed, and wasn't to reopen until 1994. The new Supertram station was built just 100m southwest of the site of the original sheds.

The Explore

Today, the old Tram Sheds showcase some of the finest graffiti in a city that's always been head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to street art. You can think of the Attercliffe tram sheds as Sheffield's free art gallery, but there's still enough 'trees inside buildings' action to satisfy an urban explorer.

While looking for the building, I spoke to the staff at the new Sheffield Depot indoor climbing wall. They told me their own building was a disused storage facility for cars, until it was refurbished and knocked through to build the wall.

The site itself is a quick visit, with convenient roadside parking nearby. All in all I was only there for about 20-30 minutes.
