Blaydon Burn, pipework and sandstone walling
Water Supply and Drainage
First identifiable on the 2nd edition OS of 1898, the function of this feature is unknown, but the pipe may run within an earlier open aqueduct. A large diameter cast-iron pipe runs, partly buried, within a stone-built channel. The pipe crosses the Burn unsupported.
