    Aldershot Garrison Water Supply, Hampshire

    [​IMG]

    Having been holed up down South atm, I had a kind offer of visiting this place one evening having missed out on the earlier trip with BHG & BBA

    All told it was a rushed job (literally) and I only just made the last train back thanks to soylent green driving at warp speed :thumb


    I've been lazy with the history here, so I'll share what Ordnance kindly posted a while back

    ..And


    Above ground it's difficult to realise there is anything about until you look a bit closer

    A number of ornate cast iron breathers hide amongst the shrubbery, as well as some locked hatches dotted about being the only clue here

    Below, there are 4 separate Reservoirs, three large rectangular (only one accessible) and a smaller rotund one

    [​IMG]



    A couple of the hatches were flapping in the wind so I descended some rusty ladders to inspect below..

    The rectangular one was the most interesting, larger in scale and with the absence of any water these days a pipe and some valves held up by a vaulted roof & pillars, what else did you expect :p:

    Conscious of the time we headed out and descended into the smaller round resi

    There wasn't much to see here so a couple of pics before we raced for the train!
