Building Remains at Bewl Water Reservoir
Building Remains at Bewl Water Reservoir
A number of buildings were demolished to create the reservoir, including a church and hamlet.
The low water on this day reveals some remains of foundations and loose bricks, presumably of farm building, part Overy's Farm. The oast house adjacent was higher up so survived. TQ6932 : Footpath at Bewl Water
Bewl Water Reservoir
Laying on the Kent and East Sussex border, the reservoir was created between 1973 and 1975, and is the largest inland area of water in the South East of England.

To create the reservoir a 300m long dam was built and a large number of buildings had to be demolished, including some listed buildings which were relocated.

There is a visitor centre and café, boat rides, sailing club, and fishing areas. There is a 13 mile (depending on route) bridleway and footpath around the reservoir.
