In the main body of the article where it says “Hewlett distribution service
reservoir receives treated water from
the Mythe treatment works at Tewkesbury.” Followed by “they take water
from the river Severn where it is treated and pumped 10 miles to Hewletts
where it feeds Cheltenham.
Is a pretty big clue.
But then you never read beyond the headline or looking at the Pictures so
you once again prove you are an idiot and mistaken yet again. Heck this
place is not that far from you and you still get it wrong.

Which is why the reservoirs of treated water are covered and have
(varying) levels of security. Our water now comes from Burnhope
reservoir towards the top of Weardale. This water is treated at
Burnhope and is gravity/syphonic fed to us. There is a holding
reservoir to supply Nenthead and another above Alston. We are
connected directly to the mains and AFAIK directly back to Burnhope.
These holding reservoirs have fences and locked gates but little
Legally may be but untill recently *all* the water used here went
through 150 gallons of roof tanks. And when we moved in a mottly
collection of dead wild life in the bottom of the tanks mostly
beetles but one mouse. I did clean them out and fit proper covers...
Before mains water arrived about 35 years ago the supply was a bit
erractic and at that time this place was a B&B and Tea Rooms. I might
reduce the volume of stored water as and when but there is no way I'm
not going to remove it. No water for a few days due to an interuption
in supply when the roads are impassable due to snow, no thank you.
The way Harry has proclaimed on this group over the years that he has run
this or that despite his postings show that he makes some really silly
statements about things reinforces my belief that he was a swat at school
but the teachers realising he wasn’t that bright educated him in the art of
getting qualifications rather than a actually stretch any intelligence.
This enabled him to hoodwink a succession of employers that gave him
supervisory positions where he could stay out of the way supported on the
shoulders of others who got in with the jobs while played at being manager
which suited his narcissistic character that grew out of being a spoiled
brat until finally he was rumbled and got rid of.
He seems to have ended up within the NHS where due to the chaotic nature
of working in a large public sector
organisation he managed to hide his incompetence under the radar quite
Unfortunately leeches like him tend to go throw life getting
redundancy and other payments leaving a trail of damage behind them.
I've always had the impression he was the sort that thrive in big orgs
like the NHS. Ever ready to volunteer for the sort of commitees and
activities that suck up to manglement and avoid the real job. And not
much missed by colleagues doing real work who are glad he is out of the
way of doing any real damage.
A few years back and over Killhope, then over Fidddlers (Flinty Fell
on maps) and along the B6277 below the old adit source and onto the
storage reservior at the top of Alston. Places like us are T'd off
enroute. AIUI the pipe acts as a rather long syphon. How they started
it I don't know but any high spot has an air vent valve with service
valves either side.
I was told by the water board worker in Sheringham that the tank
contains a reserve of treated water. That means the treatment works can
be large enough to cover average demand during the day, rather than peak
You would not believe how many times I have had sex in a car in Winscar
Reservoir car park.
Is not a picture of me having sex in a car but shows how close to the
