TQ0869 : Track leading to water works


Part of this grid-square is occupied by the eastern side of Queen Mary Reservoir, while much of the rest falls within the boundary of Ashford Common Advanced Water Treatment Works. The track shown here gives access to the works from the west – from Charlton Road – though the lack of tarmac would suggest that it is not often used.

There is no routine public access, and this shot was taken through the bars of a gate. Satellite imagery shows that the area to the left (north) of the track is occupied by filter beds.
