hearsay A wooden hut was built here for the surveyor in charge of work on the Haweswater Aqueduct, which runs discreetly through the valley. The hut had office and living accommodation.
The present hut is considerably different from the original. A new exterior clads or replaces the old; the internal arrangements are different. It thus seems to bear little resemblance to the surveyor's residence.
