This is the "pretty cool" moment a group of urban explorers filmed themselves on the roof of Sheffield's famous Park Hill flats for a panoramic view of the city.

The film, uploaded to video sharing website YouTube, shows a woman on the roof of the Grade II listed building as well as others exploring undeveloped parts of the sprawling housing complex.

The 90 second clip shows the "urban explorers" wandering through derelict flats, some still complete with furniture, along walkways and on the roof of the building which has dominated Sheffield's skyline for more than 50 years.

The video, posted earlier this week by a user called "allthingsben" has a comment posted underneath which reads: "We made it to the roof of park hill flats, it was pretty cool."

The council estate, built between 1957 and 1961, is currently undergoing redevelopment by developers Urban Splash.
