Depth Gauge

by Taffmeister in Scapes

Victorian engineering at its finest at Green Withens Reservoir near Ripponden, West Yorkshire, England.
Precision engineering in stone with the water depth markers carved into the masonry. The structure is one side of an inlet channel (I was standing on its mirror image) the line where the water changes colour marks where the stone lined channel ends as it enters the reservoir.
There are several of these inlets and the stone lined channels which collect water from the moors run for miles and periodically they connect with others where the flow is controlled by huge stone sumps and sluice gates.
