New service reservoir, Osgodby
New service reservoir, Osgodby
The newly completed service reservoir at Osgodby. A twin compartment, half-buried concrete one which replaced the old single compartment shallow reservoir.

The replacement was part of a project improving the water supply in south Scarborough. It involved replacing three old reservoirs. Two of them on Olivers Mount were to be replaced with larger ones on the same sites.

The one at Osgodby was on a greenfield site, and was built adjacent to the old reservoir so the old one could stay in use until the new one was commissioned. The old reservoir was a simple earth embankment, originally open to the air but with a later roof structure, supported (if I recall correctly) on steel trusses. The photo here was taken from the roof of the old reservoir before the roof of the old reservoir was then removed and the hole filled in to ground level.

Water is supplied from a borehole pumping station at Irton TA0084 : Irton Pumping Station.
