    Default Sheffield Crown Court


    History stolen form degenerates excellent report earlier this year


    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.



    Th'explore


    So I've wanted to get in here for years, ever since trying but failing to get over the roller shutter cus of little leg syndrome. so armed with new, solid and fresh info I was off early doors after only 4 hours sleep from a day in wales that started at 03.33 but there was no way I was missing this again......three years of looking and knowing that one day I'd have it and looking at that bloody lampost the all the young and fit bexers shimmy up... bastards!!!!

    So I met Mr snapt and off we went and bugger me after a little jiggerypokery we were in , I had finally beaten this swine.
    You see youngsters it's not all about upper body strength, beards and steroids, all you need is timing and a little stlye, us old buggers aint outta the game yet!!!!!


    It's fair to say I loved this place, after so long a place often is a bit of a let down but not this one.























    Now entry is what can only be described as girth restricted but exit unfortunately involves....errr....well no small amount of bunching, shall we say. Me being slim had few problems but my co explorer kinda got a bit stuck..... a few times and eventually I had no choice to remove him by pulling his feet to much shouting and swearing in a yorkshire twang.




    Much fun was had 9/10 from me and hopefully I will return!
    Thanks for looking
    Don't panic, be reet!!!

    Great work mate! Always a good feeling when you finally get a place done after waiting a while for it to happen. Great to know this place is still on the cards, always fancied seeing it myself.
