UK Loxley chapel, Sheffield, Jan16

Recommended Posts

Was up in Sheffield for KM Punk’s big 30th birthday bash, and this was the first visit of the day. Turned out to be the only success for the weekend, but we had an excellent night out in Sheffield. It’s a real shame about the mindless vandalism. I have missed the best days of seeing this place, but it has been somewhere I have wanted to see for a while.

It has a large cemetery.

Group explore with KM Punk, The Stig, Auntieknickers, Lost Explorer, TSD, Miss mayhem & JuJu.

 

Built in 1787, Grade II listed, and closed in 1993.

Shot on my 11-16mm wide angle lens & 50mm nifty fifty.

Such a shame, I remember seeing pics of that organ complete with hardly anything missing. I visited here recently too and was shocked at the state of the graveyard.

 

Thanks for sharing mate :)

      Due to annoying incidents quite well known. Meanwhile, a lot was looted here and destroyed as much by vandalism.
      Visited May 2018 with @The_Raw and @Miss.Anthrope.

      It’s been a while for various reasons but I am back and hitting the “move along, nothing to see here” central resource library… no seriously, nothing to see here.
       
      So after a brief chat with who turned out to be a long time reader and follower through instagram, we chose a spot to meet and hit the central resource library.
       
      Now to be honest, I was pre warned over a year ago that this place is absolutely trashed and I can confirm exactly that but it’s one I can now tick off the list.
       
      There’s not much to see, unless smashed windows and terrible graffiti is your thing so there is a lack of photos and hardly warranting a report, but here we go anyway!
       
      History wise? It’s a library… it closed and moved to a new location, that’s pretty much all I can say!

      Only a few quick shots, taken without a tripod.
      I don't know when the chapel (called "Capel Zinc") was built, it was a subsidiary tabernacle for the now Holy Trinity Church in Corris.
      Chairs has been removed and apparently the property is now used by a flower grower.
      Visited with @The_Raw and @Miss.Anthrope.
