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.
God bless Lidl waders!
