  1. The person who owns the chapel should be made responsible for the upkeep of it, or it should automatically be taken off them and put in the hands of people who really care about Sheffield conservation. It makes me furious to see beautiful old buildings that are just left to fall into a state of such ruin that they become financially unviable to repair and, are then demolished. There are many other old buildings that are in this sorry state in Sheffield and, its about time something was done legally to put a stop to it, so these buildings are saved for future generations to enjoy.

  2. There are various properties around Loxley and Bradfield which are all owned by the same business man. He never develops the buildings or refurbishes them he just leaves them to collapse and go to ruin. There is a house called Claremont house and the Bradfield waterworks which he also owns and are also in a sorry state. I think something should be done about them all as i find it disgusting that beautiful building are being ruined by a selfish man only thinking about money.

  3. Went to check on our family grave yesterday. Was deeply shocked to see the state of the place. How sad to be unable to walk round the graveyard which is so overgrown.
    Is there any organisation who would be able to cut back the growth as a sign of respect for those who are buried there?

  4. Hi, this is a fantastic looking place and it’s really near to where I live. I’m wanting to get into this place, where/how did you get in? Any help and advice is much appreciated 🙂

  5. Wow – its lovely, what an amazing performance space it could make. Anyone in its area should start a campaign to find organisations that would like to help save it! All that beautiful wooden church furniture, be such a shame if it just rots away like so many places!
