Old Town Hall/ Old Court House, Castle Street, Sheffield (Grade II listed)

The old Crown Court on Castle Street dating back to 1810 is a magnificent Grade II listed building and in its previous life was actually Sheffield’s Town Hall until 1897 when the current one was opened. It has been derelict for many years. The interior of the building is a stunning time warp and it has been suggested that it should be commandeered by film companies for their court scenes. It does not take a lot of imagination to see the judge sitting there with the black-cap on his head pronouncing a verdict which many people feel ought to be revived.

A voluntary group has been established with the aim of protecting the building, The Friends of the Old Town Hall – more information: https://friendsofothsheffield.wordpress.com/
