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

All corridors are pretty much like these
