TQ2187 : Brent Reservoir

near to Hendon, Barnet, Great Britain

Brent Reservoir
Brent Reservoir
The reservoir was created by the construction of a dam across the River Brent which was built between 1833 and 1835, and extended in 1854, in order to provide water for the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal. The Grand Union Canal, and their successors, British Waterways, owned or own the reservoir, which has also been known as the Kingsbury Reservoir and the Welsh Harp Reservoir in the past. This is the northern section, viewed from Cool Oak Bridge, and is fed by the Silk Stream.
