Minitron, Sheffield

“Minitron” is an offshoot of the River Don in the Kelham Island area of the city – no doubt in the past it would have fed many water wheels to supply power to the many metalworking factories in this area, but is now largely culverted.

Some lovely stone work…

…eventually leads to some spraycreted sections…

…before there’s a brief open section…

…then a stretch of RCP before it joins back up with the Don

James doing his thang

Gave a couple of blokes walking home from the pub a bit of a shock when we emerged fully-wadered and asked ’em “Is this the way to Rotherham?” 😀
