TL8131 : Flood Control Depot

near to Halstead, Essex, Great Britain

Flood Control Depot
Flood Control Depot
On the TL8031 : Halstead Flood Protection Scheme is a sign Purporting to give its grid reference, however if you set that G.R as a waypoint on your GPS you are lead here (which makes perfect sense). The containers state they have metal and wooden flood barriers. The brick building holds the switchgear etc that control the floodgates. There is a TL8131 : Flood Scheme Plaque on the wall.
