3/37 Syphon carrying Hatfield
Waste Drain below North
Level Engine Drain
approximately 580 metres
east of A18 - A161 road
Drain syphon. Probably between 1795-1813. Revetment walls probably later
C19. Tooled ashlar facing and parapet, brick and ashlar tunnels and
revetment walls. Approximately 22 metres long north-south. North and south
sides both have 3 segmental-headed tunnel entrances with rusticated
voussoirs flanking pointed cutwaters; band and coped parapet carrying C20
railings above. The tunnels slope sharply down below the waterline.
Adjoining stone-coped revetment walls to the lower drain flank each side.
Hatfield Waste Drain (the southern of the Double Rivers) passes under North
Level Engine Drain because it is obstructed by the River Torne. Although
drains were cut here by Cornelius Vermuyden in the mid C17, no constructions
of that period are visible, and it is likely that the syphon was part of
late C18 - early C19 improvements, perhaps those made c1795 by Samuel
Foster, or c1813 by Thackray, following John Rennie's proposals. Similar to
the smaller syphon at Sandtoft, Belton parish (qv). MHAD "How the Drains
Came", Part 2, Appleby Frodingham News, Vol 15, No 4, 1962, pp 28-31.
