Listing Text


9/86 Weir and Reservoir below
Tent Hill


Weir on River Skell, and reservoir shown on map as Half Moon Pond. c1730
for John Aislabie of Studley Park. Gritstone. Weir approximately one metre
high, at west end of reservoir which is ox-bow shaped and almost encircles
the artificial mound known as Tent Hill. The lining and the flanking walls
to the weir and the retaining wall at the base of Tent Hill are included in
this listing. The reservoir is the collecting point for the water used in
the Canal, Moon, Crescent and Half Moon ponds downstream. Water leaves the
reservoir through the culvert at the north-west end and enters the gardens
through the arched facade known as the Rustic Bridge (qv). Tent Hill was
erected as a back-drop to the gardens and was originally surmounted by the
Temple of Venus. The boundary with the parish of Markington with
Wallerthwaite passes through the centre of the Reservoir. W T C Walker,
personal communication.
