    Default A&E Distribution, Neepsend, Sheffield, South Yorks, October 2019


    1. The History
    Very little history on this place. The former Distribution Warehouse is in an area known as Hallamshire Works on Boyland Street in the Neepsend district of Sheffield, on a 1.8-acre site. The site is well-placed due to its direct access into Sheffield city centre and out to the M1 Motorway at Junction 36. A Street View capture from October 2014 shows the site being used by C&D Transport Express. Meanwhile, a Google search also turns up A&E Transport Ltd, another Road Haulage Services company, to be based here too. A Companies House search confirms that they are one and the same and owned by the same directors, although A&E predates C&D.

    They appear to have vacated the site in early 2016 as the premises were being advertised by estate agents Frank Knight in March 2016. The photographs from back then show the site to be clean, tidy and secure and on offer for an annual rental of £67,000. After then, with lots of other choices in terms of factory space rental in the area, the site seems to have been unoccupied. However, while the brochure pictures of the site show no trailers in the yard, today there are five left behind, hinting the premises may have subsequently been let out.

    2. The Explore
    In the good old days Sheffield had a hat-trick of great explores (The former Law Courts, George Barnsleyís and the adjacent Cannon Brewery). Pickings are now pretty slim in the Steel City and weíre now down to here and Eagle Works just down the road in this neck of the woods. Itís a far cry from the halcyon days of exploring in Sheffield. However, with a bit of time to kill and the weather pretty decent for an October afternoon, I decided to head over here, with fairly low expectations. Itís been empty for a while and a regular hangout for the skateboarders and the graff artists. Itís a really easy in and relaxed explore, although as a former distribution centre, itís spare in terms of fixtures and fitting and is effectively just a big empty factory space. That said, itís quite photogenic with the graff and the crane is also a point of interest and worth half-an-hour of your time.

    Brings back awful memories of working in cheap warehousing and in appalling conditions!
    I'm guessing that that particular area is about to be redeveloped?
    Full of meaty goodness.

    Yeah. It's quite a happening area round here at the moment. The big question is what happens to the brewery site as that has a massive footprint.
