TQ3498 : New River Aqueduct

near to Forty Hill, Enfield, Great Britain

New River Aqueduct
New River Aqueduct
The New River was opened in 1613 to carry fresh water from near Hertford to Islington. In maintaining the contour, it had many large loops: in 1859 a 3 mile loop through the Whitewebbs estate was cut off with embankments and this aqueduct over Turkey Brook. Just to the right (north) of here is where Thames Water extract water from the New River and pipe it into the King George V Reservoirs prior to treatment in Walthamstow.
