Visited with Ferox after trying to get into cannon brewery & deciding to leave it for another day due to some dodgy looking locals. A bit of a shell but some decent graff in here, to be honest if it wasn't for the Graff it would of been a bit shit, have to say there's some pretty skilled graff artists in Sheffield. Met some other explorers when we got there they had already had their fill of the place and were just leaving, sorry guys can't remember your names one of them was dead friendly & had a bit of a chat with us before we went inside. Was a nice relaxed atmosphere in here and found a dead thing :D







History,

"The water works was built in 1913 to filter and treat water taken from the Dale Dike (the cause of the 1864 great flood of Sheffield),and Agden reservoirs in the nearby Loxley Valley.

In 1974 the Yorkshire Water Authority took over and then during the Thatcher government the entire UK water industry was privatised with the Water Act of 1989. The pumping house at Lower Bradfield was abandoned in 1994 when a new pump house and processing plant was built Further down the Loxley valley."



the 2nd cat we saw that day



really like this one

The graffers seem to love their derps in Sheffield, always seem to be one step ahead of the UE community somehow too! :lol:
