Grosvenor Hotel

As a Sheffield based explorer, I like many others had my eye on this for quite a few years. The hotel closed down shortly after I finished Uni. It was a few years later when discussing the place on one of the forums I use, that people started to take an interest. There was always a feeling that the place was a kind of fortress. Most of the downstairs was boarded up and signs denoting it was used for training police dogs put off any serious attempts to gain entry.

Like most derelict buldings, eventually a way in was found…

The place is one of a few almost iconic brutalist structures dotted around the city. The future of the block seems uncertain as the land has been earmarked for redevelopment into a new retail quarter.

This explore was one done with a very short lived spell witha Fuji X-100. You should be able to see which of the pics I did with that…
