Cerne Abbas Flood Defences
Cerne Abbas Flood Defences
This dam is built across the valley just upstream of the village . At the far end is a sluice gate which can be closed preventing flood waters coming down into the village. The waters are allowed to build up behind the dam and form a lake in the meadows on the left, and the waters are then slowly released. In the background can be seen the Cerne Abbas Giant. the cars on the right are in the Village hall Car park.
