SZ1594 : River Avon above Christchurch waterworks

taken 10 years ago, near to Burton, Dorset, Great Britain

River Avon above Christchurch waterworks
River Avon above Christchurch waterworks
This pipeline across the river is near the upstream end of the large waterworks of the Bournemouth and West Hants Water Company. The river flow is controlled and divided into three streams here by sets of hatches, which also serve as footbridges carrying the Avon valley Path across the river. The tranquil, rural scenes of the upper stretches of the Avon are suddenly transformed at this point, not just by the industrial buildings, but by a profusion of high steel fences and unwelcoming signs.
