I could never understand, in fact I still don’t, as to why the council allowed the destruction of all the old Victorian shops on Pinstone Street including the Cambridge Arcade, then add insult to injury allow the horrible buildings that were put up in their place. Thanks to picture Sheffield.

In Leeds there are streets and streets of buildings like this in everyday use

Why the need for more bars and restaurants? it could be used for independent outlets, I for one do not want or feel the need to travel out of town to places like Meadowhall or the large supermarkets.


It's situated just next to the new retail quarter I think

The last time I checked this, Sheffield had 11 quarters, which at first doesn't seem to be very logical. However, the term quarter in this instance derives from the French word "quartier", meaning a district or neighbourhood, and is often used to designate an area where one trade or occupation predominates.

It still seems rather confusing to those of us who take quarter to mean one fourth of the whole of something.

I wonder why our Council couldn't have used the simple English..."District"? ( derived from the Latin districtus) Perhaps "quarter" sounded sexier and more with it?😌

Probably went with the term Quarter because lots of other large cities were doing it at the same time, which I think was in the early 1990s. it was the trendy thing at the time and to some extent it has stuck.

It does seem a pity that the council (or whoever came up with this idea for them) couldn't have used a bit of originality with the naming rather than just following the crowd.

When did the SA close it ?  It seems to have been like that for ever.  Every time I pass it I think what a shame it is.

They moved to a new Citadel in 1999.
