Chamber on possible reservoir, Norland Moor
Chamber on possible reservoir, Norland Moor
I am fascinated by this site (see SE0521 : Disused bunker, Norland Moor, Norland, SE0621 : Entrance to World War 2 bunker site, Norland Moor, Norland and SE0621 : Mysterious slab, Norland Moor, Norland). There are old council waterworks reservoirs on the other side of the moor, but they are labelled as such on old OS maps. The enclosure of this site was not shown until the post-WWII maps, suggesting a possible military purpose, but someone is still taking an interest as the entrance has been closed by a hurdle secured by two padlocks since my previous visit. I also noticed an access cover secured by a padlocked bar at the western end of the enclosure, supporting the reservoir theory. Perhaps it is a private water supply.
