The Visit

Not seen a report of this online before, so hopefully provides something new. A solo visit; uneventful and nicely atmospheric in the morning sun. Entry was fairly conspicuous but also reasonably simple, and once inside I spent some time taking in the scenes on each of the four floors. The lowest level was very dark and empty, so these photos are from the three top levels. Very little remains inside the buildings, but the rooms themselves were interesting spaces to spend some time in and photograph. This place has been on my radar for a number of years. However, it has also had quite active security, with others who have tried access (until recently) met by a prompt security guard, alerted by the motion sensors inside. I'm guessing that this currently lack of security probably means that this place is soon to be flattened and replaced with student flats, like the rest of the buildings in this area (and, in fact, most of Sheffield).

I'm kind of disappointed if I'm honest, this had potential.

Great work getting in and for getting a report up, but a little more sparse than I'd have hoped!

Thanks - and yeah, I know what you mean. After waiting so long to get in it's a shame (but fairly inevitable) that it wasn't full of treasure. Nice to see a place that's not full of tags and syringes though, especially around these parts, and a fairly peaceful wander. The search continues.

Eye witness works... keep your "eye" on it, won't be many (or any) like that one...
Yes! It's on my regularly-pass-by-and-check list. Seen some pics from someone's permission visit inside part of it a few months back. That part was cleared tho.

Good stuff. I've eyed this up (with its dodgy entry) for a while, it's slightly less fucked inside than I'd anticipated to be fair.
