    Default Lower Bradfield Fliter House, May 2013


    This was one of a few very enjoyable visits along the Loxley Valley on a lovely sunny day. The Filter House at Lower Bradfield has been done on here a few times. Here's the brief write-up from Wiki:

    On Mill Lee Road are the former water board filter houses which filtered water from the Agden, Dale Dike and Strines reservoirs in Bradfield Dale. The filter houses were built in 1913 and extended in 1953. In 1930 the Filter House was the first building in the village to have a telephone installed. The Filter House closed in 1995 as a larger new modern water treatment plant was opened in the Loxley Valley. The building is now derelict and its future unknown but it has found a use, as an artists canvas for various graffiti artists in the area.
    Its position on a busy main road and the heras fences mean it is not the easiest access. There's not a great deal left inside of the old plant but the fantastic graffiti merit a visit in it's own right. It's quite a damp building so there's a turnover in the art on offer and a number of paintings in other reports has deteriorated quite quickly. Anyhow...on with the pictures:

    Great set that - And the graffiti has evolved! You have actually made it look far better than it is with these photos, nice one!

    It's a lovely little place to spend a couple of hours. The graff is forever changing, so worth going back from time to time. The fencing really is a joke though

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    very nice - I like this place. The street art is of high order too - I believe the humming bird one that was there on my visit is no longer there :(
    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.
