Penny Samuels: ‘Leading up to the pool, the mechanism to raise the ‘plug’, the ‘plug’ and the outfall from the ‘plug’, which is still working perfectly.

The swimming pool, which is about 12 feet deep, was built by the American GIs stationed in Ivybridge during WW II. It was fed from the River Erme. If you want to see it you’d better be quick; it’s being filled in.’
