The old water works
The old water works
This fine structure has undergone a recent redevelopment and is now a suite of flats for residential use. Of course, it was originally the water works: founded in 1882 (the building is probably a little older), the company attempted to bring reliable, clean water to the town. However, the sewage system (such as it was in those days) was somewhat at odds to the supply of water and there were many incidents of contamination. The task of suppling the town demanded that new works were built at nearby Baunton in the 1930s and the old works went through a number of changes of use before today.
