Hampstead Reservoir, London - Thames Water

Hampstead reservoir is a wonderful example of mid Victorian architecture and epitomises the specific genre of public works found throughout Great Britain.

The reservoir and railings were constructed in 1856 for the New River Company to serve Hampstead with the water being delivered by pipes from Highgate. The company was absorbed into the Metropolitan Water Board in 1902.

ICR was contracted to prepare a consultative document based on a specific project requirement to carry out a visual survey of the decorative cast iron elements forming a perimeter railing surrounding Hampstead water reservoir. The final documentation also included a conservation method statement for repair and a materials technical specification.
