    Default Sheffield Crown Court - January 2018


    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, 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 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.


































    Thanks for looking :)

    I'm surprised that this place is still standing but I do like the idea if the fire escape.

    It's all down to patience and timing, there's a whole row of bus stops on one side and you can see every one on the top deck!

    Great to see some pics from here, its been a while, shame its pointlessly graffed up esp when Sheffield has some of the best street artists, but then they are probably more respectful to such an historic building, its just the twats that tag em that aren't.

    Thanks for your update, enjoyed lookin thru your pics!
