Waterseekers Revitalises Victorian Boating Lake

We’ve struck water….well (no pun intended)

Waterseekers have struck water at Tyntesfield House.

The Water Boreholes

Two water boreholes were drilled to a depth of 150m in the grounds of this  spectacular Victorian Gothic Revival house and estate near Wraxall.

As a result of the boreholes, the National Trust will be revitalising a Victorian boating lake and supplying water to irrigate the house gardens.

Tyntesfield House


Welcome to the Victorian world of Antony Gibbs. An ordinary man with an extraordinary fortune, a man of vast riches but simple pleasures. Antony was the second generation of the Gibbs family to live at Tyntesfield. He epitomised the Victorian age, fascinated by art, technology and travel.

We like to think he would be proud of the technology we have used to install Tyntesfield House with its own water supply from two water boreholes, which will keep a boating lake topped up and many acres of gardens watered.


We offer a turn-key solution that covers not just the technical aspects such as borehole prognosis, but also every requirement typical of any large commercial water borehole project:

  • Insurance
  • Health and Safety
  • Project Management

If you would like to talk to us about your project, we are happy to give no obligation advice. Visit our website, use the contact form, or call us on 01909 724286
