Thanks to Adrian for access to the building.



    1. Thank you for your encouraging comments. Yes it is a shame that it was left to fall into a state of disrepair. I met the present owner and he is at least reclaiming the materials from the building to be reused. It was too far gone to be renovated. The wall outside was actually stolen!!!

  1. Great images, and nice to know that the church will live on, even if in another form. Religion may be out of fashion but upcycling and recycling are in 🙂

    1. Yes there is a lot of materials reused from old buildings in Sheffield. It’s a shame that so much of our heritage is simply replaced by ugly city living flats – as is the case in Sheffield. Earlier this year I lent my support to a campaign to save the Portland Works. It the place where the first ever stainless steel cutlery was made. Its great that a community can rally together to prevent an historic building being converted into yet more flats!
