A brothel that rose to fame after featuring on a national TV documentary has been abandoned and left festering after its workers upped sticks and moved elsewhere.
Stained mattresses, used condoms and a price list were amongst the things found in the seedy venue.
City Sauna in Sheffield was the location used for A Very British Brothel, which was shown on Channel 4 in 2015, as well as follow-up A Very Yorkshire Brothel, shown in 2019 on ITV.
The business operated in a converted pub in an area known as the city’s "golden sex mile", billing itself as a "massage parlour".
But when it later moved further down the road, the filthy venue was left derelict and gathering dust.
The disgusting abandoned premises have been caught on camera by urban explorer Lost Places & Forgotten Faces.
He told YorkshireLive: "I quickly got an idea of what went on here, with old condoms in the showers, stained mattresses – this place was as seedy as it gets.
"One of the rooms had a very peculiar odour which must have been lingering for years. Sort of a mixture of urine and sweat."

The images include a "Naughty Boys’ Room" as well as mundane items including a shopping list and a supply of HP Sauce.
A Very British Brothel featured the daily workings of the "sauna", which was run by a mum and daughter, Cath and Jenny.
It gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at all aspects of the business, from how they drew up the daily rotas all the way through to the unusual customers and the odd requests they had.

Some men who used City Sauna just popped in for tea and a chat, while others – including Food Man – had bizarre requests.
The brothel even ran a Christmas raffle, with everyone who entered getting a mince pie.
Pictures of City Sauna are just the latest snaps to reveal the social history that is often right under our noses.
