Chard: Chard Reservoir
Chard: Chard Reservoir
The north-eastern end of the lake. It was originally created in 1839-1842 to provide power for a water turbine, to work the Chard Common Incline on the canal, linking the town with the Taunton-Bridgwater Canal. The canal was a latecomer and had a short life: it was abandoned in 1866. Since 1990, when the reservoir was given to the district council, it has been transformed into a Local Nature Reserve, popular with anglers
