The pipes that carried the water were constructed of wood staves, wrapped in heavy gauge steel coil, and then covered in creosote soaked canvas. Throughout the 1920s, local residents had agitated for an up to date water supply and holiday makers had long complained about poor facilities. Water had been a scarce commodity in Bridport particularly during summer. Tanks would often run dry and water was carted from above the tidal flow further down the Brid River.
