Brunel invented the Railway, Babbage invented the computer, Berners-Lee invented the internet and right here on this site, Hugh Myddleton did not “invent” running water as such; he made it possible for the masses by undertaking a huge engineering project in this field not seen since the aqueducts of Roman times. The aim of this private company was to bring fresh water from Hertfordshire to London and this huge site by Rosebery Avenue was developed for this purpose, hosting a giant reservoir with water coming from Amwell.
About the Building
The Metropolitan Water Board later built their headquarters here and various other buildings had their related purposes from lab testing to accounts. After the office functions were moved to Reading, the whole complex was redeveloped with private homes in mind.
The Remus Building is the smallest building on the site and was the former water testing facility built in 1922- 1924. It provides eight apartments.
