Above: The remains of a Joseph Foord water race below Aldergate Bank.  This was cut in about 1759-60 from Piethorn Spring to serve Nawton and Welburn.  Despite the use of crude instruments, long stretches were surveyed to have a fall of only about 1:350, and it continued to supply drinking water to some homes for 200 years.
