The 1980s Dam

Photograph of the dam in Hebden Horse Level

This photograph taken in 2012 by Stuart Hesletine, shows the dam built in the 1980s to support fish farm operations in the entrance passage. Before water levels were lowered in 2003 to aid exploration the water on the far side of the dam was chest-deep.
