Disused Reservoir at Western Corner of Slipe Wood
Disused Reservoir at Western Corner of Slipe Wood
This water reservoir has brick walls with a timber roof covered in corrugated iron sheeting. The structure is about 15 x 30 feet and is sunk into the ground to provide a deep tank now disused, dry and filling with debris. Some while ago an elderly villager suggested that it had been used to provide water for steam engines & ploughs which is plausible given this isolated arable farming location.
