ST 56 SW and 56 NW 3/163 and 6/163 WATERY LANE GV Aqueduct


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.4 m deep and 1 m at its widest carried across the valley and over Watery Lane 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. The pipeline, still in use, is part of an 18 km supply line (see also previous Item, and Harptree Combe, East Harptree, Wansdyde D.C.), and probably the oldest surviving example of such engineering.
