Victorian Aquaduct Survey Tower

In the forest above ‘Fishpools’ near Bleddfa, Wales, is this Water Pipeline Survey Tower – one of many built to survey the 73 miles of aquaduct route carrying fresh water from the Elan Valley to Birmingham, UK.








An exhibition on the building of this aquaduct will be on display @KnightonMuseum after Christmas (2019).

Acquisitions of the Month

This week, the WoW Collection is making space for two more bedtime memories in the form of copper water bottles. Both bottles were purchased in Leeds and probably date from the early 1900’s , being made in Germany or the Netherlands.

The role of the WoW Collection is to support our charity’s outreach educational workshops, trigger memories, promote creativity, inspire ever wiser water developments and  serve as a fascinating record of water use.

Join in the fun and become a Friend of WoW

Do you enjoy making friends as much as we do? Friends are wonderful and our charity is only able to continue its work with the help of the many friends we have made.

Friends help us to increase the usefulness of the WoW Collections, raise funds to finance new aquisitions and carry out much needed conservation work. At our Field Centre, friends gather to enjoy countryside activities whilst adding features that will help to explain the wonders of water to students from all over the World.
