Notes about this historic site

1 A survey of the hydro-electric power station at Alscot Park, dating from c. 1912. It is a well preserved, small scale, estate based hydro electric power system with the water turbine still in situ. It is likely to have been made gradually redundant in the 1930s after the establishment of the national grid.
