Exmoor : Wimbleball Lake & Dam
Exmoor : Wimbleball Lake & Dam
The dam was constructed between 1974 and 1979 using aggregate and sand from local quarries to maintain the pinkish colouring of the local soils. The dam is approximately 300m in length and 50m in height. The steeply wooded riverside of the Haddeo Valley below the dam attracts wildlife all year round.
