Surveying Tower, Hardcastle Moor
The surveying tower was used in the driving of the aqueduct tunnel under Greenhow Hill abt 1900. The tunnel is part of a long aqueduct from Scar House Reservoir to Bradford. In the foreground is No1 Well Shaft, one of 3 access points in the tunnel which is 3.5 miles long and reaches its greatest depth below the ground surface at No2 Shaft, Craven Cross, Greenhow, where it is 600 feet down. This is deeper than any of the mines reached. For further information see LinkExternal link
