The North Hinksey Conduit House

We are looking after the North Hinksey Conduit House on behalf of English Heritage. It's a remarkable piece of Oxford's history, located on a hill looking out over the ringroad and onto the famous dreaming spires of Oxford below. Inside is a small well, which used to take clean drinking water from the springs at North Hinksey all the way down to the Carfax Conduit, an extravagant fountain in the middle in the city which was used to get clean water.
