SE23NE CHURCH WOOD AVENUE, Far Headingley 714-1/6/651 (North West side) Water Works Meter House

II

Meter house. Built between 1905 and 1912. Rock-faced ashlar, grey slate roof. A tall single-storey building in Gothic Revival style set against the side of the filtration reservoir. Central porch with pointed arch and paired board doors, cornice and blocking course. Flanking arched 2-light windows with hoodmoulds; angle buttresses, moulded stone brackets support deep blocking course with arched recesses. Hipped roof with glazed ventilation canopy, iron finials. INTERIOR: not inspected. In 1905 seven filter beds in Weetwood treated the water from the Washburn valley reservoirs; by 1912 there were 17 beds in Headingley (Kelly), suggesting that this building dates from the period when the filter beds were extended across Otley Road. Water reached the town by gravitation or via North Lane Pumping Station, North Lane, Headingley (qv). (Kelly's Directory of Leeds, 1905 and 1912).
