Megatron, Sheffield

Next time you step off a train at Sheffield station, have a think about what’s under your feet…

Those train tracks must be built on fairly solid stuff, right?

Think again…two of Sheffield’s waterways, the Porter Brook and the River Sheaf, come together under the station and then flow together until they join the River Don.

There’s a mix of boring concrete pipe, brick tunnels, stone walls and fantastic arches, the constant sound of running water and the occasional deafening rattle and roar of a train overhead.





There’s some work going on in one section and they’d kindly left the lights on for us…

God bless Lidl waders!
