SK2686 : Rivelin Tunnel Pillar number III

taken 8 years ago, 4 km from Dungworth, Sheffield, Great Britain

Rivelin Tunnel Pillar number III
Rivelin Tunnel Pillar number III
Footpath by Redmires Upper Reservoir conduit. The stone structure is Pillar no.III, a sighting tower used to survey the construction of the Rivelin Tunnel. The conduit behind the sighting tower traps water which normally would flow down towards the Rivelin reservoirs but is diverted towards the Redmires reservoirs instead. Water also enters this conduit via a small tunnel connected to a slotted spillway on the outfall of a small reservoir on Middle Moss. With a sluice gate open more water flows into the Redmires reservoirs, reducing the flow into the Rivelin reservoirs. The flow of water into the Rivelin reservoirs is compensated by water flowing from the Derwent Valley reservoirs via the Rivelin tunnel. SK2786 : Rivelin Lower Reservoir in winter
