Information

5. ‘...the hole where the water is obtained’

This soak was carefully maintained when in use. Water was pumped to an underground tank next to the headkeeper’s cottage and then carted to the other cottages. Even after the buildings were demolished in 1927 the water was still pumped to the tank and then carted day after day up the hill to the new houses for the gardens.

In 1861 the headkeeper complained that the neighbours’ sheep, cattle and horses never left the reserve. Readily available water from the soak would probably have enticed them to stay. No longer in use, the soak has silted up.
