Challacombe Reservoir
Challacombe Reservoir
Marked as Bray Res on maps, it is the source of the R Bray and was built in 1936 to supply Ilfracombe with drinking water.
The reservoir is now managed by South West Water plc and holds approximately 52 million litres of water.
There is Open Access around the water but as no Southward exit is apparent, this Geographer remained on the high ground.
