Sheaf Quay, Sheffield

Sheffield is very much a mixed bag with a great deal of dereliction and a large amount of redevelopment, most of which seems to be unoccupied. Sheaf Quay, on the North side of the city, shows this contrast quite well. The bits that have been redeveloped, such as this former warehouse that is now flats, look splendid but the buildings nearby are run down, empty and uninviting.

Sheffield offers a face that is trying to improve and I am happy to give it that chance but at the moment there is much of it that shows the despair of the past rather than the hope of the future. I hope the future wins.
