Milton Brook valley near Lopwell
Milton Brook valley near Lopwell
This photograph was taken shortly after the clearance of all woodland in this section of valley as far between Lopwell and Lilliput, 1k south of Milton Coombe, during the winter of 1978. The clearance was in preparation for the damming of Milton Brook at Lopwell to create a holding reservoir of water for Plymouth during times of drought. The dam was never built and the woodland has subsequently been replanted, making an interesting comparison with today.
