Office building, London Road, Sheffield

Demolition to demolish a high street building in Sheffield:

A modest but important part of the street frontage along London Road in Sheffield City Centre, this Victorian building with the painted wooden window trim is exactly the sort of building that urban designers long for. Its frustrating that we are pulling them down.

Sheffield has a fascinating city centre. Lets keep it that way and look after its history.
