    Nicely done. Still looks good. And those court rooms, not smashed up. Who'd have thought.

    Hoocha

    Always unusual of to find or even get into buildings in the middle of towns. Nice photos, building look rather interesting.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    Glad you finally made it in Hughie! ;) Great pics too, love the external details you've captured.
    No one ever wins. No one finally loses, except the dead. Under the sun they rot together with absolute biological equality.

    Cheers D. The inside so so good people often overlook some of the finer external details.

Commercially you'd need 3m to buy it and approximately 10m to restore it.



    Cheers PV. The wait paid off. Yes, saw the aftermath of Tbolt's visit so tried to avoid doing that! Loads of wood in there so yes let's hope the firebugs don't get in.
    Hi - I'm a trustee of the Friends of Sheffield Old Town Hall and we are pressuring the council to compulsoary purchase the building so that we can restore it. These photos are fantastic and it would be great if we could use them to publicise our campaign and show what it's now like inside. Would you be ok with us using them for our campaign, we are determined to prevent it falling down and return it into use. We would of course be happy to credit you with the photos :) You can check us out on Save Our History ? Sheffield Old Town Hall and Save Sheffield Old Town Hall - Home | Facebook Thanks, Janet
