Tony Allwright Photo Gallery: Gell St Adventure Playground in 1977 & 1979

Tony Allwright moved to Sheffield in the 1970s. As a keen amateur photographer, he took an interest in documenting the people and buildings of many areas of Sheffield, including Broomhall.

The hundreds of photos of Broomhall that he has kindly shared with OUR Broomhall have been split into different galleries.

This gallery contains views of the adventure playground at the bottom of Gell St. This has now been replaced with a permanent grassed play area with swings etc. This is probably much safer – but does it stimulate the imagination in the same way?
