Electricity Sub-station at Kirkstall Forge
Electricity Sub-station at Kirkstall Forge
This substation pre-dates the re-development of the Kirsktall Forge site, and probably supplied power to the site when the forge was producing axles etc. It looks as though it has been maintained in good condition (apart from graffiti) so will probably continue to supply power to the area.
Seen from a new road off the main road into the site, both as yet un-named.
Kirkstall Forge development :: SE2536
The site at Kirkstall Forge is being redeveloped to provide commercial and residential buildings and a new railway station. The former factory buildings were cleared several years previously, and development was delayed by the recession. The railway station has been built during 2015, and will open by Easter 2016 (having suffered several unexplained delays), and construction of the first commercial building is planned for 2016. A new access road has been built to the station from Abbey Road near the junction with Hawksworth Road.
