    Default Ridgeway, Sheffield


    This place has long been my nemesis having been to the place several times and never managed it because it's always been so busy, but with demo pending I made the extra effort and got up at 03.30 to drive the 1 hour 25 mins or so it takes from near God's country.
    There was still a couple of builders about on the site opposite even at 05.50 on a Sunday morning, Christ knows how much those chaps are on!!!

    I met up with Snapt and we went over the wall, finally I was in and it really didn't disappoint. I had already seen the pics of the art inside but it was still brilliant to see it in the flesh before it's lost forever.

    I'm not doing any history as it's all been done many times but I am doing some pics as I was so chuffed to get in the bloody place.






























    9/10 from me on this I loved this place.

    Lots of graffiti but some of it is a bit arty looking.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Awesome set of pics. Used to be a walk in but like most places in Sheff these days, is a bit more of a challenge now. But still worth it and like your take on the old girl.
