Springhill Lane
Springhill Lane
Just above the hedge can be seen the top of a World War II pill box. This was sited to give protective cover to the Royal Navy radio station in Sandybed Lane at the foot of the hill.
the fenced flat area in the background is Springhill Reservoir opened in 1928 to augment the town's water supply at a time when new developments were taking place. Water is pumped to here from Irton Waterworks.
