NJ9505 : Syphon House

taken 4 years ago, near to Torry, Aberdeen, Great Britain

Syphon House
Syphon House
The little octagonal granite building is one of two syphon houses built in 1906 as part of the system for discharging sewage from north of the river to the outfall at Girdle Ness. The other is at Point Law on the other side of the channel. Unfortunately it is in a locked-off area and I couldn't find an angle to photograph it without the container in front.
