PCWW Marker, Cast Iron, 1915 Inscription on Pipe

Acknowledgement: Very special thanks to Paul Rendell, author of Exploring Around Burrator – A Dartmoor Reservoir – Updated Edition (2023), for showing this inscription to Max Piper.

This iron pipe conveys water from the River Meavy and Hart Tor Brook into the Devonport Leat, once the water supply for Devonport in Plymouth before growing demand necessitated the construction of Burrator Reservoir in the late 1800s.
