Go round to the back of this site to Myddelton Passage where you can see some buildings etc. from the early days of the New River and there is an outdoor exhibition explaining things.

In 1920 this building replaced the 1613 Water House, the original HQ of the New River Company. Inside is the 17th century Court Room, rescued from the previous building.
