Water Supply and Drainage
Water Storage Site
A small pitch reservoir relating to the tar works (HER ref. 1651) was situated between the head of Hobby's Dam (HER ref. 1655) and the quarried-out face of the valley adjacent. This was built by 1919 and had been slightly extended by the 1930s. Some surviving pieces of masonry in this area may relate to this feature.
