Visited on the worlds most miserable morning... it was cold, it was wet, and it was windy. With MrBeady, GeoVdUb and Bannedbatz

First went here a while back and thought it was a ruddy good derp, i liked it very much, so decided to take a trip back. I
ts till a ruddy good derp.. albeit a slightly more damp one.

Missed the clocktower on my first visit so was keen to have a look this time, but have to fully admit to having a full blown meltdown when i got to the top. Wind, wet, pigeon shit, and minimal floor space did not mix well...

Was extremely suprised to not see 13689239038093 people in the main court in masks getting a crew shot, suprised but also pleased

A bit of history as is customary

Sheffield Old Town Hall stands on Waingate in central Sheffield, England, opposite Castle Market.
The building was commissioned to replace Sheffield's first town hall, which had opened in 1700 to a design by William Renny. This first structure stood by the parish church, on a site with little prospect for extension.

The Old Town Hall was built in 1807–8 by Charles Watson, and was designed to house not only the Town Trustees but also the Petty and Quarter Sessions. The initial building was a five-bay structure fronting Castle Street, but it was extended in 1833 and again in 1866 by William Flockton (1804-1864) of Sheffield and his partner for the project, Abbott; the most prominent feature was the new central clock tower over a new main entrance that reoriented the building to Waingate. At the same time, the building's courtrooms were linked by underground passages to the neighbouring Sheffield Police Offices.

By the 1890s, the building had again become too small, and the current Sheffield Town Hall was built further south. The Old Town Hall was again extended in 1896-7, by the renamed Flockton, Gibbs & Flockton, and became Sheffield Crown Court and Sheffield High Court. In the 1990s, these courts moved to new premises, and since at least 1997 to present, the building remains disused.
