5. Sheffield Tram Sheds
Urban explorers have noted some artistic graffiti popping up at what used to be the Attercliffe Tram sheds - used for servicing Sheffield's trams when they were first introduced, before closing in 1960.
6. Hepworth Refractories
This factory closed in the 90s, once housing Hepworth Refractories and Carblox - carbon blocks for the steel industry. Old shoes and milk cartons have been found on the site, and plants are now growing through the old toilets.
7. Firth Brown Medical Centre
Urban explorers have kept the location of this creepy abandoned gem under wraps - an old abandoned hospital which now lies beneath a Sheffield car park. Rusty old beds and medical equipment now lie, unused, underground.
8. MFA Bowl
A lounge bar, changing and powder rooms and even a children's nursery with closed circuit television for childminding are all abandoned at this 24-lane bowling alley, which has been closed since 2018.
