Not exactly a traditional aqueduct but the course of the River Lavant, West Sussex, was diverted to supply water to Chichester.
The river originally flowed into Pagham Harbour to the south of Chichester whilst now it eventually flows into Chichester Harbour just south of Fishbourne.
A few years back after very heavy rain Chichester flooded as a result an massive overflow drain has been built that follows the original course to Pagham Harbour.

Near the city I am researching no evidence of aqueduct-related architecture is found, but there is a hypothesis of earthworks serving as the substructures for the aqueduct. I seem to remember cases like this existing in Britain, but the names escape me. Does anyone know of such earthworks? > > regards, > Liesbeth Van Camp> Gallo-Roman Museum Tongeren> > Don Henson <[log in to unmask]> wrote:> IFA Workplace Learning Bursary in Historical Archaeology (Fixed-term)> > > Hosted By: ARCUS within the Department of Archaeology> > > Ref: R05749 Closing Date: 26 November 2007 > > Salary (equivalent to Grade 3): £14,436 Start Date: January 2008> > Applications are invited for an HLF funded Institute of Field Archaeologists (IFA) Workplace Learning Bursary in Historical Archaeology within ARCUS.
