The site of the aqueduct is at Cole End, Coleshill. The main sewer from Meriden and Solihull connects with the aqueduct at the point D (Figure 1). Sewerage is carried from D through the overflow chamber (19 C) over the valley and the old course of the River. Cole to the Control Tower (19). From this tower the sewerage is taken under the existing course of the River Cole, and also under the main Lichfield Road by means of a cast iron pipe syphon. Rising at a gradient of 1 in 14, the syphon again joins the main sewer which carries the flow to the new disposal works of the Tame and Rea Drainage Board, near Hams Hall. It will be noticed that inference is made to the old and existing courses of the River Cole. The course marked AB represents the original lie of the river some hundred years ago, but in order to supply the mill shown near the road a diversion was made. This work may have proved satisfactory during the time when the mill was in use, but, unfortunately, during the past years, severe storms very quickly flood the main road. In view of this inconvenience, it was decided to divert the river into its original course, which was then little more than a ditch course, during the dry weather. W.B. Davies
