    Struggled to dig up any info on when this was constructed, assumedly it was a service / holding reservoir for drinking water to be fed down into the town as it sits above the city centre in Manningham. Approximately 1.5 acres in area so quite large.

    There was a planning application to remove the reservoir and build 24 houses and 8 apartments in 2004 but it was withdrawn.

    Concrete and brick are the means of construction here meaning a good 10/10 echoey structure, perfect for a good sing song. A nice find by our little Bradford based bearded buddy and his banned pal, popped in early doors with Geo, Beardy and bannedbatz.
