  1. UK Sheffield tram sheds, March 2017

    short vid of a back up splore few months back, nice artwork.
  2. At first glance this old school looks to be about the most trashed location you have ever seen, the mostly glazed front has had almost every single window smashed and almost all the ceiling tiles have been pulled down leaving a huge mess of glass and tile debris all over the floors and outside, but it's what's inside that counts here. At one stage it was a nursing school but at some point after closure pretty much the entire building has been taken over and systematically had some seriously incredible murals painted in many of the rooms and corridors by a duo of Belgian graffiti artists, Pete and Mata. The most impressive selection of graffiti I have seen, the only place that comes close to this is Doel also in Belgium but this takes it to another level. If you're a fan of skilled graffiti, this is one place you need to check out. It's difficult to pick out a decent amount of photos so I'll just go with my favourites.

  3. I loved it in here, it's a big old place with various buildings and lots of cool street art dotted around. I visited with Acid- Reflux a couple of weekends ago and we enjoyed some glorious sunshine despite initially fearing the worst. Demolition has begun inside one of the buildings but they haven't really scratched the surface yet so it's still well worth a visit. History (stolen from Und3rcover Genius): Stones Brewery (William Stones Ltd) was a regional brewery founded in 1868 by William Stones in Sheffield, West Riding of Yorkshire, and purchased by the Bass Brewery in 1968. After its closure in 1999 its major brand, Stones Bitter, has continued to be produced by the Molson Coors Brewing Company. Stones Bitter was brewed at the Cannon Brewery from 1948 and was popular with Sheffield's steel workers. Stones Bitter was originally available across the south of Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, with distribution extended to the rest of the north of England in 1977, and nationwide from 1979, accompanied by a considerable marketing push. Increasing demand saw it also brewed at other Bass breweries from the 1970s onwards. The beer's popularity reached its apex in 1992 when it was the country's highest selling bitter, selling over a million barrels. The beer has been lauded in certain quarters as "one of Sheffield's most famous exports". Sadly, the declining demand for Stones Bitter has meant that this once bustling brewery has been stood empty for a decade and a half, and demolition work has started recently. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26.

  4. I visited this treacherous site in the dark with a friend (ACID- REFLUX from 28DL) who took one for the team by going through the rotten floorboards just before we left The main attraction of this place for me was the rumour of 10 hidden paintings by the Sheffield based street artist Phlegm. We managed to find 8 of those, I think the rest may have been destroyed by the collapse of various walls and roofs. The place is a total death trap at least in the main building on the first floor, there are holes everywhere going right through to the lower level and it's so overgrown that most of the holes are invisible. Anyway, if you like playing treasure hunt and dicing with death then this a great place I couldn't find much history on the school buildings specifically but here is some info on the adjoining church and parish as a whole: Matthew Ellison Hadfield designed the chapel-school which was completed in July 1853 at a cost of £1,850. The chapel was greatly expanded in 1856 by George Goldie, a partner of Hadfield’s, with the addition of a nave and a chancel and was officially recognised as a church although it had no tower or spire. Further building work took place in 1870 when a church tower was built up to a height of 40 feet which incorporated the south porch and an entrance from White Croft. The tower was raised up to its present day height of 93 feet in 1911 when a donation by Mr. Philip Wake enabled it to be completed in a design in the Norman style based on a typical church in Normandy. The architect of the new tower was Charles Hadfield and it was formally blessed and opened by Michael Logue Primate of All Ireland on 28 October 1911. The first Sheffield Blitz raid by German bombers on the night of 12/13 December 1940 resulted in the destruction of the original 1853 chapel when a parachute mine landed on the roof. The original girls school was also destroyed and every window in the church was blown out destroying some valuable stained glass windows. The newer part of the church from 1911 escaped serious damage. Unsure how long this place has been abandoned but for quite a long time judging by the state of it. The adjoining church was also abandoned many years ago although it is currently used for storage by a charity who provide poor people with furniture. With fears for our safety in mind we didn't hang around too long so the photos perhaps aren't the best but they were all I could manage under the circumstances in a short time frame and in the dark The exterior shots were taken the following day.

  5. I like graffiti and ever since I saw this place I wanted to pay it a visit, it was second on my list for the day and I was alone. I parked up and found a way in, I could hear a generator and see a cabin on one side, so I went in a different direction. After about half hour I walked out of a building and straight in front of secco. He looked at me and ambled up while I walked down to him, he didn't say anything so I told him what I was doing and asked if he minded if I carried on. He asked how I got in and if there was anyone with me, I told him, he asked how long I wanted I told him and he said I could as long as I didn't go anywhere stupid. They have cleared between the buildings and he said they will be down in 3/4 weeks, so it looks like I got there in time. As I was squeezing through my exit point I was face with a couple of coppers, they asked what I had been doing and ask if I knew I was trespassing, I told them that I had spoke to the secco and they were happy. They were looking for some young kids and asked if I had seen any, when I said no they just walked back to their car. As I said, I did take some photos of the buildings but the graffiti was the main subject. full set here http://www.flickr.com/photos/100221036@N06/sets/72157640154562644/ Thanks for looking
  6. Quick explore of this Derpy house, I normally love houses and yes Cottages and take more pics in there than a big place, but here well, I think I took 17. This little adventure was just a quick splore whislt waiting for another opportunity to present itself (I bailed eventually on the explore I was hoping to do ) Can't find much history on this place, it sits in a prominent situation overlooking a famous town where house prices can be extortionate! Sadly this manor house has been visited a few times by the metal fairies and local youth hell bent on destroying this place! How it hasn't been set on fire yet is surprising, but if the owner doesn't do something shortly I think it'll be gone. Enclosed in a large walled garden, even has its own pet cemetery but I failed to find it the bushes! A very sad sight, think it could have been a nice place at one time! Even had its own little gate house, but that has also been wrecked. If you got this far, congratulations please contact me to claim your prize.
