It’s been on the cards for some time due to the land being sold to a housing developer, but this week saw the final bells toll for Sheffield’s much-loved DIY build. The bulldozers moved in and its semi-hidden concrete bounties are sadly well and truly demolished.
We thought that this spot deserved something of a send off to honour the many hours of graft that various members of the Sheffield skateboarding community put in to provide this dope spot to the skaters of the city and the UK skateboard scene as a whole, so we’ve put together a mixtape of some of our favourite clips filmed there over the years.
There are plenty of tricks and people missing, (Korahn Gayle’s nollie heel backnoseblunt for example) but like we said, these are some of our favourites from over the 5/6 years of the spot’s existence.
Big up everyone who helped make this place what it was – you know who you are.
Big up all the filmers and photographers who have made sure that this place will live on too.
Footage in the mixtape originally filmed by the following people: Matt Hirst, Sam Bailey, Ben Powell, Callun Loomes and Ryan Gray. Apologies if we missed anybody out. You are all shatter-proof rulers.
