Pretty cool video of a place that I knew myself. It's the Ski Village in Sheffield/UK, or better what's left of it. Tuns out it burned down and now looks like some post-apocalyptic place, pretty much like all the industry districts of Sheffield. Quite some memory lane here.
Was in Sheffield during my phd years and the first thing when I arrived there, before everything else, of course I visited the Ski Village. The place was on top of the a hill, towering over the ugliest part of Sheffield's industry district. Walking through there and up the hill, litter and garbage everywhere, stinking like hell, I almost threw up to be honest. If you used to snowboard in the Alps, this was just depressing to watch. Still, seeing it burned down is not nice.
