The Loxley Valley lies on the western outskirts of Sheffield, about 20 minutes walk from where I live. The valley was once quite heavily industrialised but, with a few exceptions, most of the factories and mills have long since closed down. During the past few decades years, natural regeneration has slowly but steadily reclaimed many of the old industrial sites.
Property developers have applied for permission to build houses on several large sites within the Loxley Valley. As this will undoubtedly change the character of the valley, I've decided to make a photographic record of its current state. I will post the pictures here.
