    Channel 4 HQ - Sheffield

    No. But despite what Londoners think, 99.99% of the world don't start their journey from there. ---------- Post added 02-11-2018 at 09:30 ---------- Liverpool has a similar lack of transport connections as Sheffield (though it does obviously have an airport). In contrast BBC News and Sport works fine from the better connected Manchester. BBC Breakfast, Match of the Day etc. get their guests in fine.

    Business needs transport infrastructure. That and a skilled workforce are the only two factors. Do you really think a guest coming onto channel 4 news is going to fly into Manchester, then get the 60-90 minute chugger over to Sheffield, for the sake of a 5 minute interview? Or get the slow diesel train up from London and back - a 5 hour round trip?

    Crawshaws Butcher perhaps closing?

    A company with 600 staff is not a small business/local shop by any definition. Much better to support the genuine independents around.

    So that's part of the price of giving away our HS2 station and airport then

    Did you know his 'autism' is self-diagnosed?... His cerebral palsy is legit, but that's a physical impairment. Jared is just a nasty piece of work. He gives disabled people a bad name by constantly citing it as an excuse for his simple bad behaviour.

    Someone whose previous job was DJ-ing at a rock bar has said "loud noises mean I cannot cope"

    Sheffield's Mansions?

    You pay that for a standard 3 bed in S10. £2000-£2500 is more London The usual saying is that London prices per week are what the rest of the country would pay per month

    Sheffield's Mansions?

    They are actually all over the place, although most are now flats For instance Hillsborough way there's Burrowlee House just off the park, theres the one on the left as you head down Dykes Hall Road, and Loxley House on Ben Lane. The old asylum at Middlewood is stunning too. There's also the impressive Queens Tower up Park Grange Road in Norfolk Park

    Arundel Gate Closed 3/10/18 from Midnight

    That's neo-liberalism for you. You need planned obsolescence. If things were built to last, it would all go Man In The White Suit. I'm not sure many/any of those flats are owner owned. They are all buy-to-lets

    Arundel Gate Closed 3/10/18 from Midnight

    It was built with an intended 30 year lifespan, so is getting on for half its time now

    Arundel Gate Closed 3/10/18 from Midnight

    That building was so cheaply and shoddily put together, I'm surprised it's lasted 10 years

    Sentinel brewhouse and eatery

    I thought this was a great place, but always felt the location was a problem. It's kind of hemmed in by major roads and no one really lives round there, nor is there a cluster of other places to bring people over. If it had been located on say Division Street, it was 10 times the pub that Brewdog will ever be

    The Plough at Sandygate

    I don't think I've known an area so in need of a decent pub. If done properly, this could be an absolute goldmine. Demographics wise, it's Real Ale heartland round there

    He worked on the door and DJ-ed at West Street Live for years. Most of his reputation for misogyny and homophobia come from his widely-observed behaviour in that role, not his internet hate spiel. This isn't a slur on WSL by the way - which (in my opinion) is otherwise a nice family business Here's a news story about it anyway: https://www.shefnews.co.uk/2017/10/31/sophie-evans-west-street-live-knew-what-jared-o-mara-was-like/

    I've known him fairly well over the years. He's all the bad things people say about him and worse. He's a nasty nightclub bouncer who has fluked his way into a cushty job he can't get sacked from for 5 years, effectively thieving our taxes.
