Outfall, Silent Valley Reservoir
Outfall, Silent Valley Reservoir
The water seen overlowing the Silent Valley Reservoir in J3021 : The Silent Valley Reservoir runs underground until this point where it is channelled down into the Kilkeel River. The noise of the rushing water was tremendous. Compare to this view J3021 : The outfall from the Silent Valley Reservoir from May 2012.
Belfast & District Water Commissioners gates and buildings

Images relating to Belfast & District Water Commissioners buildings and gates found throughout County Down between the Mourne Mountains and Belfast. They are found in and around the Silent Valley and in numerous places above the underground Mourne Conduit which carries water to Belfast. The buildings are mainly pumping stations, wells or houses (mostly now vacant) for staff. The red gates were erected, mainly through farmland, so that BWC staff (linesmen) could walk the length of the Mourne Conduit and visually check for problems at the surface. The posts have BWC cast into the metal at the top (Belfast Water Commissioners - see J3452 : BWC gate near Ballynahinch for a close-up) and there are a few to be found where the letters are back to front! The gates are also found in several places on the Mourne Wall - see J2923 : Stile and gate on the Mourne Wall and J3228 : The Mourne Wall at the Hare's Gap for examples.
