    Default Valley Brickworks


    Hello its my first post
    Loxley Valley Brickworks
    History
    Located in the north west of Sheffield. Last occupied by Hepworth Refractories. Refractory bricks are used in kilns and steel furnaces.
    The site has been an area for industry since the 17th century. Loxley suffered greatly on 11 March 1864 when the dam wall of the Dale Dike Reservoir was breached causing the Great Sheffield Flood.

    Very early morning walk in May to look at some sheds before work
    Started with a walk through the woods to find the clay mine which served the Storrs fire clay works. There's a short tunnel into the mine which is caved in.

    Decent pics that, could do with some history to make it a report.
    I like the internal panorama, works quite well that
    What the hell am I doing, I mean really at my age!

    Nice shots, it's a good afternoon out with lots of street art to discover.

About us
DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
