Water Cistern near Briantspuddle
Water Cistern near Briantspuddle
This concrete water tank is located on the hillside above Briantspuddle where a spring emerges. The reservoir has a level indicator which consists of two semi-circular metal plates about 30cm diameter. One plate is rigidly fixed to a pair of metal poles 2 metres above the tank, the other is fixed to a single movable metal pole which enters the tank and has a float on the bottom end. When the tank fills up the float pushes the lower indicator up and it slides up on the two pole as the tank fills thus showing how much water is in the tank When the tank is full the two semicircles meet making a complete circle which is visible along distance away to the farmer at the farm at the bottom of the hill.
