and Tunnel

Bears inscription. "This arch was rebuilt in the year 1682. Honerable Henry
Earle of Clarendon Being Gov." Long tunnel over canal, barrel vaulted brick,
mostly pinky-yellow stock brick, probably early Cl9. The arch ring at one end
is of Portland stone, inscribed as above with a fine shield of arms with mantling
helm and crest of Myddelton. Capping over plain parapet. Historical interest.
The tunnel carries the Salmons Brook beneath the New River. Above tunnel on north-
west side a stone with inscription: "This bank of earth was raised and formed
to support the Channel of the New River. And the frame of timber and lead which
served that purpose 173 years was removed and taken away. MDCCLXXXVI Peter Holford
Esquire, Governor." These are part of the works of the New River, founded in
1613 by Sir Hugh Myddelton in order to bring a purer water supply to London.
