Anyone remember this far back and remember this famous theatre being built next to The Lyceum Theatre?

The year was 1970 and the excavation in the immediate foreground shows the basement level of the former Nether Chapel (built 1828 on the site of the earlier 1715 chapel) which site is now occupied by the Central United Reformed Church ( built in 1971 as the new Nether Chapel). There were a number of graves within this site particularly adjacent to Chapel Walk and the Victoria Hall (bottom LH corner of picture).

Makes me think of The Playhouse.   We very much missed its intimacy when it closed I had to  move out of Sheffield  up to Teesside & we have the Middlesbrough Little Theatre which reminds me very much of The Playhouse.
