I don't know if it's widely known that these are the oldest cooling towers still standing, certainly in the UK and possibly on a global scale. The photographer Bernd Becher took pictures of many in Germany and the USA which were all in a derelict, pre-demolition state, between the 1960s and 1990s.

 

I have a photo project under way, but can't post a link as yet. The images are hosted by photobucket.

Personally I think it quite sad that the towers are coming down. I am sure that like a lot of things in years to come people will start talking reminiscently about them.

 

They are after all a landmark of Sheffield.

 

I know people might think me mad but I do think they will be missed.

Has anyone tried called the numbers on the Sheffield council website? Only way of getting a definite answer, I'd have thought.
