SHREWSBURY NOBOLD LANE, Radbrook (East side) Conduit head (Formerly Listed as: The Broad Well Conduit House)

II

Conduit head. Original structure late C16 with later alterations. Roughly coursed and squared red sandstone with timber-framed trusses in each gable and plain tiled roof. Small gabled structure comprising a single chamber accessed by small inserted doorway in gable, with brick lined water tank inside. Gables have cambered trusses with bracing and collar, and are slatted. HISTORICAL NOTE: the conduit head was a collecting tank associated with 9 wells in the vicinity, and provided a source of water for the town of Shrewsbury from 1556, the present building probably completed by 1578. Water was piped from this site, known as Broadwell, to several points within the town. The system was established under licence to the Corporation, and was acquired by the Corporation in 1878. It remained in use until 1947. Some of the urban conduit heads associated with this system still survive (Betton Street, Porthill Road, St Michael's Street, Sundorne Road, Town Walls (qv)).
