Came here for the first time in 1991 for the World Student Games and a few times after that for athletics, back when some Sheffield folk still pronounced it atholetics. Drive past recently and sadly it's no more. This should never have been knocked down....More

Cold, desolate and depressing. And that is just the food ! A horrible place surrounded by filthy streets and very grubby pubs. On a plus point it's only minutes to jump back on the motorway, home.
