Snippet Detail

Plate 75 is an image taken on 28 July 1959 (through Bridge 108 - Metcalfe's - see SCRCA structure 255790) of the Garsdale water troughs.  This is another of the comparatively few bridges constructed entirely of brick.
Plate 76 is a view also from 28 July 1959 looking north from the top of the 43,000 gallon water tank   serving the water troughs (see SCRCA structure 255900), which was installed in 1907.  These were the highest troughs in Britain.  The 1,670ft troughs held between 5,000 and 6,000 gallons of water and, at one time, the tanks were steam-heated to prevent winter freezing.
