    Arrow Bradfield Filter Houses. Loxley Valley, S.Yorks, March '09


    The former water board Filter Houses which filtered water from the Agden, Dale Dike and Strines reservoirs in Bradfield Dale are just outside Sheffield in the Loxley Valley. The Filter Houses were built in 1913 and extended in 1953 before being closed in 1995 when a new water treatment works was opened in the Loxley valley, the buildings are derelict and unused at present.

    A big valve. It wouldn't turn, much to the relief of the residents nearby.


    This corridor had some good plans on the wall.


    Overgrown


    Some grafitti, Trans pennine crew?




    I'd always wondered where this gentleman lived. It's on this wall.


    This place is a great place, and, considering it is pretty stripped, is a really chilled explore. I loved it.

    There's definitely something about this place. Love the exterior and some very interesting details inside.
    Fabulous photos, Box. :)

    I can't read and I can't write, but that don't really matter,
    I come from the west country and I can drive a tractor.

    I definetly like the main wherehouse with the Iron supports in the roof. It sort of reminds me of a station.:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'
