Site of Fairhill Old Dam, Alston

  • Description

    "This part of Fairhill used to be a reservoir holding water from the mill race which was then used to power various industries in Alston. As this is a very wet area it was decided to create an environmental area. Frogs and newts used to live here and frogs have begun to return. Bats are sometimes seen in the evenings and rabbits are often visible." Photo by G Laird, 2014.
