Troubled Waters: The Great Cheltenham Water Controversy

  • 215 pages

  • 90 illustrations

  • From 1820 onwards the growing population of Cheltenham struggled to find a water supply to replace its inadequate and polluted wells. How to achieve this became a matter of a passionate and angry debate. The factions were of many kinds: Liberals and Tories, private and municipal, gentry and tradesmen, Economists and Non-economists, plumbers and employers, landlords and tenants, Spa purists and philanthropists. External conflict spread to Charlton Kings, Tewkesbury and Gloucester and nationally through Parliamentary Bills. Fought through the Press, meetings, petitions, speeches and even poems, and not without its humorous moments, the Great Cheltenham Water Controversy lasted over 60 years, as Government legislation, a new breed of water engineers and sheer necessity began to change entrenched attitudes. The story has its technical aspects in the building of local reservoirs and water infrastructure but it also presents a vivid picture of local government and social attitudes over the period.
