Visited with jazzywheelz and tablets and then revisited with jazzywheelz. Shots from both visits in no particular order.


Ah, Grosvenor... (In)famous Sheffield Landmark... derp icon...

History isn't worth much, basically it was a run-down hotel that managed to stay open far longer than it should have; at some point South Yorkshire's finest used it to train their dogs; and theres a good chance it'll be demo'd in the future if plans to redevelop that part of town actually go ahead.

I'm trying to resist writing that over-used line, "we'd had our eye on it for ages" etc, but it's true. As with many other places, we'd sniffed around a fair few times and came up empty handed.

I missed out on the first couple of excursions here but tagged along one evening with jw and t who'd already been in I beleive. And with access as "interesting" as it was, who could resist a return visit?

Let's begin in the lobby:

...and what better way to relax after a hard night's derping, than an oversized deckchair?

Cheers all :thumb

can only imagine how bruised you were (if the access I remember is right)
Yeah, just a little uncomfortable that one!

Not bad mate but it needs more selfies :thumb

I was expecting a visited with *Asterisks* ;)
All about context :)

No asterisks needed for this one lol

Nice one K-plan. Good to see you putting a bit of time in on sorting your backlog.
I'll get there soon! Couple more locations to come yet.

Love it! Some amazing shots mate, can only imagine how bruised you were (if the access I remember is right)

Loving that shot of Jazzy (I think) too :)
Could anyone tell me where I can access this building? Been wanting to get in and shoot some photos myself for a while now but never found out how to get in! Thanks in advance!

Hi Cohen, the best way is to put a bit of leg work in your self, access can change frequently. Plus you have just joined the forum today and your fist post is asking for access.

How about a hello and an introduction telling us what you're interested in. A few reports would also be nice, who knows you could be security, a metal fairy or the like ;)

I agree with TLR, give us an introduction and a report or two first and then maybe might be willing to offer an insight :) Also remember this is a forum that anyway one can see so if we post access in a comment anyone who reads this can see :)

Good luck exploring, can't wait to see your reports

Hi Cohen, you won't really get a positive answer by asking this,
Post your introduction and some reports, so then we can get
To know you better. : )

If you do that people will be more willing to help you,
The search box above is also very handy ;)

Anyway welcome along, looking forward to seeing some stuff :thumb
