    Swithland waterworks - wow! what a site and what a day.

    Bridge, excess fountain and pool stonework of 1896 built by Hawkesley of London in 1896. Granite rubble stone and dressed stone.

    6 former filter beds, water tank with gazebo and steps of 1896 by Hawkesley of London. Granite rubble stone, dressed stone, blue brick and lead. Series of 6 polygonal filter beds, symmetrically placed about an hexagonal covered, partly sunken, draw-off tank with elaborate balustrade and central gazebo in Renaissance style. From pumping house forecourt, a short flight of stone steps with side parapets, leads down north-eastwards to area laid out like a grand formal garden.

    And what lies beneath was a sight to behold - the light was superb.
