The amaz­ing hid­den reser­voir un­der Nor­wich

Look­ing like a cathe­dral in brick, this is a rare glimpse in­side a Vic­to­rian water reser­voir un­der­neath Nor­wich. The Lak­en­ham fa­cil­ity, built in 1871, is never open to the public, but once a decade is drained, in­spected and deep cleaned by Anglian Water. “When it was built it was an ab­so­lute feat of Vic­to­rian en­gi­neer­ing,” says Nik Shel­ton, from Anglian Water. The reser­voir will next be opened up in 2029.
