Additional Information

The waterworks was built in the north-east corner of the site in the mid-late C19th, appearing on the 1st edition OS Map from 1884. The site fell out of use by the early C20th. A map dating from 1910-20 features the waterworks buildings, including new extensions to the original waterworks building. The only surviving waterworks features on the plan of 1958 are the pools. In the 1990s these were finally backfilled.
