    Arrow Water Filtration Works. Bradfield. Sheffield. June 2011.

    The Water Filter Station was built in 1913 to purify water from Strines, Dale Dike and Agden reservoirs. It closed in 1995 when a new water treatment works was built and is now dilapidated, but it has a classical-influenced fašade and is a prominent feature of Low Bradfield. The Authority is recommending it should be repaired.

    Following on from blueinks earlier report, and seeing the place had fresh graff, I decided that a revisit was due.

    It's really had a battering since my last mooch, and now has some really bad and mindless tagging. The more discerning artists however deserve some credit for their talent.

    Explored with my son

    The usual external shots first.

    The Classical Facade. ( apologies for the blurred spots, was pissing down )



    The worlds worst fence, and every explorers nightmare to negotiate



    Lets get in out of the rain.



    Some mindless moron decided to think it was FINE to spray over the wonderful blueprints of the plant



    And how it looked 12mths ago.



    Right... Iv'e had my rant. Lets carry on

    Bloody hell Something still intact



    Loved the roof.















    And credit where credit's due













    Ta for looking.

    Nice shots, not a fan of random tagging but some of this is pretty cool, some of that stuff is by rocket who's pretty well renowned in painting circles, used to dabble myself back in the day, never to this standard though and I gave up a good few years ago, wish I'd taken a camera with me in those days I saw some right places that are mostly gone now
