Queen Adelaide Reservoir under construction
The Queen Adelaide Reservoir, across the road from the Queen Adelaide Public House in Gee Cross, is one of several in the area, built by the Victorians in the late 1860s.
Most like the one at Little Stonepit have long since been covered in and grassed over.
This one is now Sam Redfern Green and the venue for the annual Gee Cross Fete.
