    aye ...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.

    Wink Sheffield Crown Court, April '13


    Hello there folks;)

    Had a great little visit with Jimba and Ruby1995, this is an access neither of us shall forget and i have the bruises to show for it;). Shame we couldnít have met up wiv ya Skanky as fink u were down south moochin about at the time:)

    A little bit of history...


    The Old Town Hall designed by Charles Watson in 1807 was built to house the Petty and Sessions Courts. In 1833 and again in 1866 Flockton and Abbott extended the building and added its most prominent feature the clock tower, with underground passages linking the courtrooms to the adjacent police station were also created. By the 1890ís the building had again become too small so was extended by Flockton and Gibbs, and became Sheffield Crown and High Court.

    In the 1990ís these courts moved into new premises leaving this building derelict since 1997.
    In 2007 the Victorian Society named the old Sheffield Crown Court as one of their top ten buildings most at-risk.




    its a rather impressive building with its clock tower and ornate stonework






































    I like to try and learn something new every day, no matter how menial...so good for Gilly






    emergency lightin still left on
























    For the peely paint fans;)






    Thanx for lookin folks;)
