Does anyone remember these?

Anyone remember these on the top of the Moor outside Debenhams and McDonalds?

They were a big feature of the Moor back then but when did they disappear?

They were known as a part of Blunkett's folly

Sounds interesting - what did that involve?

The wholesale spending of money on the Moor after pedestrianisation by uncovering a section of the old tram track... creating small gardens and features...as well as building a bandstand which  if memory serves me was used just once, and kiosks and small retail units...Sounds great and probably as good as the waste of money that's just happened at the other end of the Moor...with stone benches and silly statements/sayings inscribed on them.

I seem to remember these were removed when the Moor was re-developed after being 'sold off' by the Council to a property management company, so sometime late 90's early 00's

I ended up in Sheffield in 1993 and they were there then but can’t remember them being there too long.

Didn't they look stupid? Two white elephants would have looked better.
