    Myself and BBA had first put up a report on this set of Reservoirs back in 2013 http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums...rian-Underground-Reservoir-Hampshire-Dec-2013 after seeing a lead from Trevbish http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=60023. When we went we only managed to do two out of the four Reservoirs on this site. Iv'e seen a few reports from here since but none had shown the other two. Had a return visit because we wanted to try the old wire wool spinning trick. When we got there we managed to get a look at the other two. So here they are, similar to the other squarish reservoir seen in other reports, but not identical. Went back in late November and noticed that all bar the small round Reservoir, they have all got padlocks on:(

    History has been supplied by Ordanance ( many thanks )

    South of an area known as 'Caesar’s Camp' on the A287 which was a major water catchment area for Aldershot Camp which had its own water supply from Aldershot Town

    There were (and still are) a number of uncovered reservoir's and until recent years a water tower and pump house on the other side of the road

    These would feed smaller header reservoirs and water towers in the camp which in turn fed tanks in the roofs of the barracks


    PICS

    AS YOU LOOK AT IT FROM THE ROAD, THIS IS THE BACK LEFT RESERVOIR

    Good to see you got the 2 done.. in fairness they don't look much different than the other (not the rotund one), except for the supporting columns, good on you both for persevering with them though, some decent pics too :thumb

    Funny how the roofs look so thin from below.
    Made me wish I had not eaten all the pies.
    :D
    Nice to see the others.
