The Colony Reservoir

The Colony Reservoir

As its name suggests this small reservoir located on the Charnwood Lodge Nature Reserve used to supply water to The Colony located at Mount St Bernards Abbey. The inmates of this establishment are credited with excavating it. However another theory is that they only cleaned it out deepened it and laid a pipe to the Colony and that it was originally formed or utilized to supply extra water down to Charley Mill via a culvert that followed closely the contours of the land.
