BUSH HILL SLUICE
Sluice building to New River. 1796; probably by Robert Mylne, for the New
River Company. Painted brick on stone arch; Welsh slate roof. Single

with 4-panel door; lunette window to south side (boarded up) and to north

From the sluice house sluice gates were operated to control the flow of

It is part of the works of the New River, founded 1613 by Sir Hugh Myddelton
in order to bring a purer water supply to London. Another New River sluice
building survives at Newnton Close, Hackney (q.v. Ivy House Sluice item
