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.

My other ABC Wednesday Q posts this week are ~~ Queen Adelaide Inn Sign at Hyde Daily Photo ~~ Queen Victoria's Back at Ackworth born, gone West ~~ Queen Victoria Not Amused at Sithenah

To visit more ABC-Wednesday posts go to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place.


  1. It is always interesting to see how they built in "those days". More impressive techniques then we usually imagine.

  2. Another one specific to the area. You do have to work twice as hard each week woth these blogs. I am impresesd. Always enjoy the brief Hyde history lesson too.

  3. I am having a hard time imagining what it would look like with water inside. You have a wonderful site with lots of history and information. Thanks for sharing.

    I chose to use nearby Quadra Island for Q. It is a fun vacation destination that you can see by clicking here. – Margy
