After finding this site on facebook and chatting to MrB. we decided to have a look today.
Went with MrB, Lycos (his mate) and sarah (my GF).

"Dotted around the valley floor are various boreholes, their presence marked by mounds with concrete entrances that make them look like underground military bunkers. There is also a sunken aeration plant and pump station, with skylights punctuating a turf roof now burrowed by rabbits; it is less than a mile up the service track from Birchy Lake, downhill on the left, just as the ruin of Irishman's Wall running up to Belstone Tor is reached. But despite being done by an act of parliament, the water sprites never delivered the quantity decreed. The whole sorry tale is given a good airing by Somers Cocks S, in Gill 1970; Dartmoor a New Study, page 266."
Not sure what to say about the site.
looks like nature has started reclaiming it from the ground up.
it floods allot, close to 2 foot+.
still got all the pumps in place.


Pump Room with corridor with about 4 rooms that would have stored water.

Electrical panel

there is 4 of theses. 1 for each pump and 1 pump for each room?
