Worksop town centre lock 50 and canal wharf

Photography Anston, Dinnington, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and UK

A selection of shots of Chesterfield canal running through Worksop town centre.  The town centre has so much potential but has lost its way.  So many shops are closed down or not being used to their full potential.   Mass immigration and out of town shopping have had a damaging effect on the town centre.

You can see the full journey along the Chesterfield canal here timawellsphotographyandprints.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/west-stockwith-to-chesterfield-canal-via-worksop-and-retford-picture-gallery/

I will be selling photographic prints in the future, if you are in desperate need for any, please contact me.

Rotherham borough council enforcement notices for the 2nd quarter.

I have just been provided these figures by the environmental people in Rotherham council.  70 people have been fined in Dinnington, but I have seen no significant drop in littering in the area.  I do believe that we need an education and publicity campaign to reduce litter.  It would be much better to make people … Continue reading Rotherham borough council enforcement notices for the 2nd quarter.

Creative village canal road Worksop.

A rather interesting complex as you walk along the canal in Worksop.  Not sure what the full history of this site was, but there are some interesting features on it.   Part of it was the old fire station and stables, but it looks like it was an industrial complex to me.  I understand it is being used for developing new starter businesses.  If you know more about the history of this complex let me know?  You can see my full journey along the Chesterfield canal here timawellsphotographyandprints.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/west-stockwith-to-chesterfield-canal-via-worksop-and-retford-picture-gallery/

Kilton rd cottage Worksop canal

Photography Anston, Dinnington, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and UK

I love this cottage by the side of the Chesterfield canal, one downside would be noise from lorries and cars passing over the bridge.  Last time I passed it, they were renovating the whole block of houses.  You can see my full journey down the Chesterfield canal here.  timawellsphotographyandprints.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/west-stockwith-to-chesterfield-canal-via-worksop-and-retford-picture-gallery

What is the strange chimney and building at Kilton/Manton? Bracebridge pumping station.

Photography Anston, Dinnington, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and UK

I always thought the chimney and the strange building was an old Mill.  But recently found out it was an old Victorian pumping station for sewage at Kilton/Manton.  The building is currently derelict and on the market with Mellor and Beer estate agents.  It would be great to see this turned into a tourist attraction of some kind.  It would be great as a heritage visitor centre for Worksop.
