5/1 Conduit head at SK 0923 0928

- II*

Conduit head. Probably mid-C12. Large sandstone blocks, part refaced to lower parts in brick; solid stone roofing blocks. A small square gabled structure set into a bank so that only the gable and the roof are visible; small central (probably C19) entrance with boarded door. The interior has a pointed vault and drops below ground level (the water level was found to be 2m off the floor in 1975) to the water basin in which the lead conduit was fed. The conduit served Lichfield Cathedral and was originally instigated in 1166, used continuously until 1969 when it was abandoned. The conduit head (q.v.) and basin (q.v.) are still visible in the close. J. Gould "The Twelfth Century Water Supply to Lichfield Close", The Antiquaries Journal, Volume LVI, Part I, 1976, pp. 73-79.
