Park Hill
This large housing development on a hill to the East of the city centre (easily reachable by a brisk walk) is known to architecture students around the world, especially those trained in the 1960s and 1970s. The deck access became problematic due to crime, and issues relating to defensible space started to become much-talked about in architectural circles. The concept started to be less used during the 1970s as the impact on residents’ security become more understood.

Sheffield Architecture Photos – page

There are about 1,100 listed buildings in Sheffield (including the whole of the Sheffield postal district). Of these, only five are Grade I listed. Fifty-nine are Grade II*, but the overwhelming majority are listed as Grade II. Compared to other English cities, Sheffield has few buildings with the highest Grade I listing: Liverpool, for example, has 26 Grade I listed buildings.

This situation led the noted architecture historian Nikolaus Pevsner, writing in 1959, to comment that the city was “architecturally a miserable disappointment”, with no pre-19th-century buildings of any distinction.
