    Arrow Redmires Water Treatment Works. Sheffield.


    The reservoirs at Redmire were built after a prolific Cholera outbreak in the City of Sheffield back in the 19th century. There are 3 in total which supplies water to the south western side of the city. The now derelict treatment plant is located by the lower of the three. It was built in 1949 and has the classic 50's Architecture stamped all over it.



    The works are well hidden from view and surrounded by pine scented trees.



    The approach was rather pleasant to say the least.



    In a clearing.... Large water tanks.



    21..............



    Key to the door.



    Hang on a minute!! What's this?



    It's a mole that no longer has a hole.



    In we go then. Say hello to Mr Happy.



    Friendly chap.



    Plenty of pipes, valves and storage tanks.











    In fact... Oodles of nice things.







    Classic 50's light switches and taps.





    Chlorine storage.



    H2O... Just add water.



    And as a bonus.......... Spotted these classics close by.





    And the inevitable mirror shot.



    Cheers.

    Oh lovely.

    Another one of those places that looks as if it could be functional again within a matter of months. Long may it remain so.
