Category:Service reservoirs

As noted in T.W. Woodhead's History of the Huddersfield Water Supplies (1939), the main reservoirs serving the Huddersfield area were situated at such a height above the town that the head of flow pressure "would burst the supply pipes in both houses and business premises". To avoid this scenario, a series of break pressure tanks were constructed between the 1820s and 1922, which acted as service reservoirs.
