    Beautifully captured mate. Stuff like this excites me, and thanks for putting them up :)
    what he said ^^^

    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.

    Fantastic! I have been photographing the changing streets of Birmingham over the last few years. I also recently saw a helicopter view of Birmingham from around 15 years ago and it took me about 15 minutes to put it down! Fascinating stuff.

    I was intrigued by this image and looked the company up



    ...to find out this building was listed and has been re-used!

    Lovely :)

    That's what I thought Sheffield still looked like these days, then I moved here a year and a half ago and was completely amazed by the place, it's a very special city. Especially after Leeds, where I lived for 5 years. At least in Sheffield no 12 year olds are yet to shoot my window out or torch trees in my garden :p

    Good researching Mr Bones! Yes - I've realised where this is now. Actually, it's not Brightside or Attercliffe, it's round the other side at Neepsend. Nice to see 'good news' stories like this when buildings are saved.

    The best bit for me was the poster for Aztec Camera and They Might be Giants !
    Sad to see Sheffield becoming an industrial wasteland, Meadowhall may be a nice enough shopping mall, but it won't leave any sort of history of human endeavour behind when its demolished.
    I'm still not over the demolition of the Tinsley cooling towers.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
