THE DENBURY WATER CISTERN
In 2003, the villagers of Denbury* were given a Lottery Grant for the following project involving the ancient water cistern which is such  a vital part of the village water supply.

"The project is to restore and interpret an ancient cistern which is a prominent feature in the centre of the village. The history of the feature is also being researched and its structure is being documented."

To read about the successful completion of this task , go to

*Denbury is one of several places in Devon to have a private water supply instead of mains water provided by a water company.
