Urbex: Sheffield Crown Court, South Yorkshire – July 2013 (revisit)
Sheffield Crown Courts. Another revisit explore of this awesome abandoned court complex complete with cells unusual layout of floors containing various courtrooms and judges chambers as well as press rooms and various service tunnels. For the photos from our first visit back in November and more information on this history please check out my original report here. Briefly the building was built to function as a Town Hall for Sheffield back in 1807 and was later adopted as the Crown Court. The clock tower as well as a significant extension which included a tunnel leading to the police headquarters was built at a later stage and the tunnel has since been sealed up. I have heard rumours recently that the court is currently owned by an American businessman who won the building in a bet (that must have been one hell of a game of high stakes poker) and has since been leased out for use as a set in various TV programs and films.
Returned this time with Baron Scotland and Dystopia to give them the guided tour of this awesome complex. having visited twice previously I was comfortable that I had the majority of the shots I wanted which gave me a bit more time to have a wonder around some of the less interesting parts of the building. I’ve always got time for this place it has to be one of my favourite explores in the UK at the moment! On with the photos:
