New River Company

Categories: Industry

See the New River for an explanation of why the New River Company came into being.  Puzzled why the Company should have been so involved in rebuilding after war damage we found the explanation at AIM.  The company acquired property along the route of the New River and in 1904, after losing its water supply duties to the Metropolitan Water Board, it re-incorporated into a property company.
