SJ7995 : Lake District Water flows under here

Lake District Water flows under here.
Lake District Water flows under here.
The Thirlmere Aqueduct carries water from the English Lake District to the reservoirs at Audenshaw, a distance of approx. 96 miles . It was constructed by Manchester Corporation Waterworks in phases completed between 1897 and 1925. Carrying approx. 200 million litre per day, it takes about 30 hours for water,which flows under gravity, to travel the length of the system. These structures, which I assume are valve houses, appear at intervals along its length. The journey to Manchester starts here: NY3214 : Thirlmere
