Sheffield Conservation Advisory Group are right to be concerned about the future of Sheffield’s building heritage.

In my opinion today’s architects have destroyed the character of Sheffield’s buildings far more than Adolf Hitler did on my fifth birthday, December 12, 1940.

The demolition of the Victorian Jessop Hospital to be replaced by the, (in my opinion), atrocious University of Sheffield “Diamond”is yet another example of a complete lack of taste and concern for the character of Sheffield’s historical significance.
