Old Sheffield: 9 little-missed lost Sheffield landmarks and 4 more many would be happy to see demolished

Some were widely dismissed as ugly, while others divided opinion before eventually being consigned to history

There are many lost Sheffield landmarks which people still get all misty-eyed about, from the Hole in the Road to Castle Market.

But not all buildings from yesteryear evoke quite the same depth of feeling, and there are some eyesores which most people were quite happy to see demolished.

They range from flats that were hailed as architectural wonders in their day, before falling out of favour, to huge office blocks widely viewed as a blot on the city's skyline.

One was only demolished earlier this year.

While some buildings are almost universally reviled as ugly, others divide opinion. Sheffield's Park Hill flats, for example, are still loathed by some people within the city, despite their listed status and modern-day standing as a brutalist masterpiece.

We've put together a list of Sheffield landmarks which have been demolished over the years without too many tears being shed, together with a few some folk would love to see the back of.

How many of these do you remember? Do you agree with their inclusion on this list and what do you think is the ugliest building still standing in Sheffield?
