Inlet to Inverted Syphon
Inlet to Inverted Syphon
Water is diverted from the Ashop & Alport rivers at a weir at SK141894. It flows by gravity in a conduit to the inlet of an inverted syphon as shown. The water is then enters a pipe which goes down the valley, across the river, and then up the other side of the valley. It then enters a tunnel under Hagg Fell and re-appears in an open conduit at SK168892, eventually reaching the Derwent reservoir at SK171898.
