    Default Laycock House & Pinstone Street, Sheffield, S.Yorks, September 2019


    Not so much a explore report as a documentary record, so popping this in “Other”. Sheffield City Council allow people to continue knocking lovely pre-1900 building down rather than refurbish them and this development is no different.

    Pinstone Street connects the two shopping areas of Fargate and The Moor in the centre of the city. Originally called Pinstone Lane, its eastern side contains Sheffield Town Hall and the Peace Gardens. It’s now in the process of being developed via a Multi-million pound plan for 250 flats and office block.

    Laycock House, south of the Citadel, with Cross Burgess Street to the north, Pinstone Street to the east and Charles Street to the west is being retained but the rest of the block has been or is being demolished.

    In terms of the Pinstone Street buildings, the façade of the late Victorian building which has survived the 20th and early 21st centuries more or less completely in its original form is being retained but everything behind it is being completely rebuild.

    The Easter corner of Pinstone street:

    Cheers Smiler. Went past it today and it looks a lot different now. At least the facade survived.
