    I dug out this old set of images from a trip to the Park Hill complex in Sheffield, things look very different now and I am glad I captured it when I did.

    BBC - South Yorkshire - Places - Park Hill's history

    Now an art deco company came in are still trying to make money out of the place, but construction is slow and stalled at one point….very hard to make the UK's largest list structure fashionable and appealing when the design itself is flawed, open for crime and in the worst deprived areas…a lick of paint is not going to work.

    Full Set is available here:

    This is a shot of the famous 'streets in the skies', when designed these walkways allowed milk floats to travel the corridors!
