The former Park Waterworks complex (a.k.a. The Sion Hill Waterworks) on the northeast side of The Ropewalk. This building was constructed in Early English style in 1850 while Thomas Hawksley (1807-93), of Arnold) was Nottingham Waterworks Company's engineer. It was decommissioned in 1880 when it was found that its water supply was contaminated by water draining from the General Cemetery on Derby Road. Records show that a windmill occupied this site until about 1832. A large part of this building, that has now been adapted for commercial purposes, is currently un-let. Derby Road appears on the horizon.
