The Old Town Hall stands on Waingate in central Sheffield, England, UK.

The initial building was a five-bay structure fronting Castle Street and constructed in 1807-8, and was later extended in 1833 and again in 1866. Around that same time, the building’s courtrooms were linked by underground passages to the local Sheffield Police Offices.

The first Town Council of Sheffield, elected in 1843, took over the lease of the hall in 1866. The building underwent extensive renovation the following year, which included the addition of a clock tower.

By the 1890's, demand for a larger building became apparent, and a new Sheffield Town Hall was built further south. The Old Town Hall was further extended in 1896-7 and became the Sheffield Crown Court and Sheffield High Court.
In the 1990's, these courts moved to new premises, and from 1997 to the present day, the Old Town Hall remains abandoned.

Here are the photos I took whilst exploring this place:
