NZ0246 : Rocks supporting causeway

Rocks supporting causeway
Rocks supporting causeway
What appears to be a stone wall is in fact a broad causeway which carries a track of some kind across a gap below the dam of the Hisehope Reservoir - the grassed slope at the right side of the image is the earth glacis of the dam. The stonework supporting the causeway is seen to be arranged in a crude herringbone pattern. It's assumed that the track of which the causeway is part was used to bring in materials for the construction of the dam which was completed in 1906.
