The following building shall be added to the list: BUSH HILL ROAD TQ 3295 (EAST SIDE Off) 8/220 BUSH HILL SLUICE II Sluice building to New River. 1796; probably by Robert Mylne, for the New River Company. Painted brick on stone arch; Welsh slate roof. Single cell, square on plan, straddling the watercourse. Pent porch on west side with 4-panel door; lunette window to south side (boarded up) and to north side, the latter with radial glazing bars and blind recess below. Hipped roof with spike finial. Interior not inspected. From the sluice house sluice gates were operated to control the flow of water over the Bush Hill frame (q.v. Clarendon Arch and Tunnel 8/53). It is part of the works of the New River, founded 1613 by Sir Hugh Myddelton in order to bring a purer water supply to London. Another New River sluice building survives at Newnton Close, Hackney (q.v. Ivy House Sluice item 6/425).
