ST 56 SW WINFORD and 56 NW 5/163 and 6/163 CHURCH ROAD GV (north side) Aqueduct to east of the Church of Ss Mary and Peter

II

Aqueduct for Bristol water supply. Completed 1851, James Simpson, Engineer. Wrought iron tube, limestone piers and abutments. A run of c260 m of wrought iron pipe of ovoid section cl.4m deep and 1 m at its widest carried across a valley on 14 piers in coursed rock-faced masonry, tapered square, to concrete padstones carrying rocker bearings for the large pipe. Piers vary in height to accommodate ground profile, and the central pier is cruciform, with raking buttresses. At either end a stone revetment wall, crowned with simple iron-railing, containing reservoir in puddled clay. Very prominent in the valley to the east of the Church of Ss Mary and Peter (q.v.); the pipeline, still in use, is part of an 18 km supply line (see also Watery Lane, Winford and Harptree Combe, East Harptree, Wansdyke D.C.), and probably the oldest surviving example of such engineering.
