Built in 1913 to treat water from the local reservoirs & closed in 1995, it's totally trashed & has turned in to something of a graffiti gallery for all the locals. There's a pretty vibrant graffiti scene in Sheffield, & anywhere as trashed as this is fair game, especially if you can keep dry while painting :)

Been here twice now, popped in last week while I was in the area, spend more time there today.

This, along with some more local buildings, is owned by a local bloke who is apparently just leaving them all to rot, & who apparently gets very defensive when anyone suggests as much.

Anyway, pics...

The old way in, everything except those doors (& the graffiti!) seems to be in muted colours...



Oh, & the lockers...



On with the rest...











My favourite graffiti artist, Coloquix :)



And the gallery, with another Coloquix in the corner.

That first door is so derped it looks like a hand sketch. Some pretty decent shots you got there and some nice graff too.

I've found a lot higher standard of graffiti since I've started poking my nose around a bit more enthusiastically :)

Coloquix uses cats as sign posts at some derpier sites around Sheff...



I've not been in there yet :D

hate to say it but some of that graffiti is pretty nice! Looks like a sweet level of decay - lovely pictures mate!

I love that big main door at the end, I tried to move it to get some proper shots of it, noisiest hinge ever :eek: I gave up in case any locals thought someone was tasering a pig or something :D2:

Must add a can of WD40 to my list next time I'm passing...
