Plaque, Ben Crom Reservoir
Commemorative plaque marking the completion of the Mourne Scheme. First proposed in the late 19th Century, the scheme was devised to supply water to Belfast and north County Down. Work began in 1893 and was finally completed with the opening of the Ben Crom Reservoir in 1957.
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.
