Redundant Water Reservoir - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations
March 29, 2015 at 8:38 pm by v
This was a strange explore as originally we were looking for a firing range in Plumpton (See My Previous Post) but instead we came across this disused water reservoir and upon looking at the logistics of it, we decided to make a return visit with lifting equipment. The reservoir is about 10ft wide x 20ft long x 15ft high.
I had all manner of problems with my camera aperture control, there was about 3ft of water at the bottom of the reservoir and I was hanging on to the ladder with one arm whilst taking snaps, I so wish I had waders on to have taken better snaps. The last two snaps were taken with my portable communication device and what a weird result I got!
This disused water reservoir use to be mains fed and was used to supply water by gravity to all of the surrounding cottages, houses and farms until about 25 years ago, which was when the present land owner had decided to go mains only. Visited with my Son in Law and Grandson.
