Listing Text

The following building shall be added to the list:

TQ 3295 (EAST SIDE Off)

Sluice building to New River. 1796; probably by Robert Mylne, for the New
River Company. Painted brick on stone arch; Welsh slate roof. Single
cell, square on plan, straddling the watercourse. Pent porch on west side
with 4-panel door; lunette window to south side (boarded up) and to north
side, the latter with radial glazing bars and blind recess below. Hipped
roof with spike finial. Interior not inspected.

From the sluice house sluice gates were operated to control the flow of
water over the Bush Hill frame (q.v. Clarendon Arch and Tunnel 8/53).
It is part of the works of the New River, founded 1613 by Sir Hugh Myddelton
in order to bring a purer water supply to London. Another New River sluice
building survives at Newnton Close, Hackney (q.v. Ivy House Sluice item
