Burrator reservoir, with Leather Tor in background

Comments from Prof. Robert Stone. Burrator Reservoir, probably in the 1940s, showing the two anti-torpedo nets, the remains of which we recently re-discovered on the bottom of the Reservoir (originally attached to the remains of the 1920s suspension bridge blocks on either side of the reservoir). More about Prof. Stone's project can be see <a href="https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/engineering/eese/news/2018/hit-team-discover-world-war-ii-torpedo-net-burrator-reservoir.aspx">here</a>.
