Aqueduct to east of the
Church of Ss Mary
Aqueduct for Bristol water supply. Completed 1851, James Simpson, Engineer.
Wrought iron tube, limestone piers and abutments. A run of c260 m of wrought
iron pipe of ovoid section cl.4m deep and 1 m at its widest carried across a
valley on 14 piers in coursed rock-faced masonry, tapered square, to concrete
padstones carrying rocker bearings for the large pipe. Piers vary in height
to accommodate ground profile, and the central pier is cruciform, with raking
buttresses. At either end a stone revetment wall, crowned with simple
iron-railing, containing reservoir in puddled clay. Very prominent in the
valley to the east of the Church of Ss Mary and Peter (q.v.); the pipeline,
still in use, is part of an 18 km supply line (see also Watery Lane, Winford
and Harptree Combe, East Harptree, Wansdyke D.C.), and probably the oldest
surviving example of such engineering.
