The aquaduct was built in 1837 to carry the water supply from Eccup Reservoir over Adel Beck on its way to the city centre. It was only in use for 24 years before it became inadequate for the needs of the city but it remained in place and became a popular tourist spot.

Seven Arches Aquaduct (Adel) (3 comments)
Colour image14th April 1906. The seven arches aquaduct carried water from the Eccup Reservoir (built 1837) to the city centre. Underground pipes and tunnels carried the water for most of the 6 mile route, however at Adel it must cross the Adel Beck, for this reason the aquaduct was built. After 24 years the aquaduct became redundant when it could no longer cope with the City's demand for water. Though not in use the aquaduct still stands, built of local grit stone with each arch spanning 34 feet.
