Seven Arches Aqueduct (Adel) (3 comments)
Colour image14th April 1906. The seven arches aqueduct 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 aqueduct was built. After 24 years the aqueduct became redundant when it could no longer cope with the City's demand for water. Though not in use the aqueduct still stands, built of local grit stone with each arch spanning 34 feet.
