What is under your feet and totally ignored? What do you walk over every day? What is essential in an emergency? What provides access to essential utilities? The answer lies under our feet. What is it? Give up yet? The answer is the humble utility inspection cover. Utilities like electricity, water, gas, sewerage, communications and others are essential in any community. Camden has acquired the utilities as time has progressed over the past 150 years to the present. Argyle Street has a number of utilities buried beneath the street and footpaths. Their histories provide a valuable insight into the town's development and progress, particularly in the 20th century.
