The Filter House was built in 1949,the 3 reservoirs supplying this Filter House were built in 1836 to supply clean drinking water to Sheffield following a cholera epidemic when all three reservoirs were completed in 1854 the average daily yield of water was 3.5 million gallons.

A newer Filter house was built on the site in the 80's and the two appear to have worked in tandem, for a while till the 1949 filter house closed in 1997.

Apologies for my very potted history, but research is not my forte and many details were conflicting.

We thought this place was a real gem, and must have been quite a 'happy' place to work - in my head anyway !

Quite unexciting outside

I really enjoyed this place and it was nice but a bit strange how people just seemed to have walked out and left every thing in situ.
hope you like..
