Photo and description
In order to provide the docks with water, the construction of a water conduit was launched, which began from the source of the river called Black and ended with the admiralty docks. The water conduit was laid over rough terrain. He went through the rocks. They were cut by hand to build three tunnels, which are still functioning. These works involved the forces of sailors, soldiers and prisoners serving time. In addition to the tunnels, aqueducts were built. The aqueduct is a bridge-like structure with water conduits. They served to overcome gullies, gullies or water obstacles. For all the time, five multi-arch aqueducts have been erected: Chorgunsky, Inkerman, Kilenbalkochny, in Apollo and Ushakova beams. A total of 38 stone arches were built. Some of them have survived to this day.
An aqueduct has survived to this day, which is located on the southern side of the Northern Bay. In the forties of the 19th century, a multi-arch bridge was built, which connected the sides of the beam. This bridge was built on the initiative of Lazarev, who at that time was an admiral. After his death, the water conduit was nicknamed Lazarevsky.
The aqueduct named after Lazarev was built according to the only project of John Upton, who served as an engineer-colonel. In addition to the aqueduct project, he created the project of the Tower of the Winds, and according to his design, the Grafskaya pier in Sevastopol was built. The construction was completed a year before the defense of Sevastopol, in 1853.
The aqueduct, which is located at the beginning of the Inkerman Valley, has survived. The length of this aqueduct is 18 kilometers. It was built in the spirit of classicism. The forms of this structure are similar to those of Ancient Rome. The aqueduct is built of Inkerman stone, which is well worked. This wonderful building has two sections. The first section is ten-span. Its location is in the Apollo Beam. Its length is 60 meters. The location of the second site is in Ushakova gully. It is seven-span and its length is up to 30 meters. The aqueduct is a wonderful architectural structure admired not only by artists and photographers, but also by ordinary tourists.
