View from the Ben Crom Reservoir
A view from the middle of the dam wall back down into the Silent Valley J3125 : The Ben Crom Reservoir. See if you can spot where I was standing from both J2923 : Silent Valley and Ben Crom from Slievenaglogh and J2923 : Stile over the Mourne Wall near Slievenaglogh.
The Ben Crom Reservoir

The reservoir, the last part of the Belfast Water Commissioners plan for the area, was constructed in the upper Silent Valley from 1953-57 to hold and supply water into the larger Silent Valley Reservoir below. The dam wall is 700 feet across and the reservoir has a total capacity of 1.7 million gallons.
