Sheffield Courthouse was built in the early 1800's by Charles Watson.
It was designed to house the Town Trustees and also the Petty and Quarter Sessions.
Before 1900 it had been extended a further three times.
In 1990 the courts moved to new premises and since 1997 the building has been left abandoned and unused.
In 2007 it was named in the top ten buildings at risk by the Victorian Society. Sadly this has not helped the courthouse in anyway.
After an early start and a hard drive in the snow I met Proj3ct M4yh3m and a few others nearby. This building really does hold some great features, grand staircases, skylights, wooden panelled rooms, cells and of course the court rooms.
