Hello all :)

Had a fun explore today with @-Raz- and a couple of non members​

not very many pictures for you unfortunatley but a nice little video i put together to substitute :)


History


Construction began in 1957.The City Council published a brochure on the scheme which was in several languages, including Russian.To maintain a strong sense of community, neighbours were re-homed next door to each other and old street names from the area were re-used (e.g. Gilbert Row, Long Henry Row). Cobbles from the terraced streets surrounded the flats and paved the pathways down the hill to Sheffield station and tramlines.​

Park Hill was previously the site of back to back, a mixture of 2–3-storey tenement buildings, waste ground, quarries and steep alleyways. Facilities were poor, with one standpipe supporting up to 100 people. It was colloquially known as "Little Chicago" in the 1930s, due to the incidence of violent crime there. clearance of the area began during the 1930s but was halted due to​

WWII​

Enjoy :)
