Haven't been managing to get out as much recently due to work and stuff but was walking past this place the other day so thought it would be rude not to pop in. It's easy access and just a walk in. Didn't have my camera so these are all phone shots so please bear with me for the quality of the pix.

Been here before and done a report so won't do the history bit again as it can be found HERE.

A couple of externals:

This rather nice MARRS piece has survived :

Cheers Mikey. Amazing what you can do with a decent phone camera these days...

Quite frankly if you choose your phone on the camera features and not the calling features; you can, with a bit of suitable editing software and a good eye for an image, produce photographs that can be as good as those from a couple of grands worth of kit dangling from your neck. Another thing is that, unless you are a forgetful bugger like me, you always have the phone on your person, no special effort needed to get the camera bag out of the bedroom cupboard. Also a bit of photographic equipment makes one very noticeable, not only to those in authority but also the scumbags! Of course the passing, casual thief can still make a snatch for your camera phone when he sees you waving it about, but he is not going to follow you for ages on the off chance you might have a saleable phone hidden in your pocket. Walking around some iffy derelict inner city streets; on your own and with a few grands worth of matt black cash around your neck, could be an invitation to a very sore head and a long winded insurance claim. - if one gets off lightly. Not everybody does unfortunately.

Very nice images Hughie. One might say the 'art' has improved the area some what!

The 'Old Harrow'pub been closed since 2006 the building is Georgian built around 1825. Real shame its been left to rot been told in its day was an cosy pub complete with open fires. The Durham Ox pub has been long closed since 1993 sold to an developer who used it has an site office for the student accommodation blocks next door then left it. I would have thought it would have been easy enough to convert into more flats but no left to get into this state.

Has for the so- named Attercliffe Tram sheds what I have seen makes me think it was used in the past for vehicle repairs hence the pits. Could be wrong but the sheds don't seem that wide to accommodate trams or high enough to in fit double decker trams. Has for the graffiti its the best in town.

Not sure if these were the actual tram sheds or the engineering shops for maintenance and repair of bogies, electric motors and the like. Certainly all maintenance sheds were equipped with pits so that brake blocks, drive motors and even wheel sets could be removed to facilitate maintenance and repair.
