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.

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.
