Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I thought that HoL historians might like this short clip of the underground reservoir at the corner of Ferme Park & Mount View Roads that I just came across on the BBC website.

That is excellent. Thanks for sharing it! 

Ditto. Amazing. I knew there was a reservoir here but had no sense of what lies under that stretch of ground. 

I believe its water was pumped from the New River via Hornsey Waterworks. A stretch of the original underground pipe near St Mary's Tower burst earlier this year.

Indeed it was. Read more about that in the para following Fig 15 here

Fascinating - love underground London!!!

On the subject of impressive underground reservoirs, it's worth mentioning (for anyone who doesn't know about it) the disused reservoir under part of Finsbury Park, which has even featured in Doctor Who:
