Seven Arches aqueduct, Scotland Wood

Seven Arches is the local name for this former aqueduct over Adel Beck, in Scotland Wood about 800m north of the Leeds ring road. It was designed by George Leather for the Leeds Water Works Company and built 1841-42 to supply water from the newly built Eccup reservoir to the centre of Leeds. By 1866 it had insufficient capacity for the growing city and was replaced by the first of now several water mains. It is now listed grade II (list entry 1256089).
