Exmoor : Wimbleball Dam
Exmoor : Wimbleball Dam
The 161 feet (49 m) high dam is of concrete buttress construction and impounds the River Haddeo to provide a water storage capacity of some 21,000 megalitres over an area of 374 acres (0.584 sq mi). Aggregate for the dam came from a quarry at Bampton and sand from Cullompton. These were combined to give a pinkish tinge to blend in with the local geology.
