Falls Creek Reservoir wall
.

Completed in 1895, this reservoir - also known as Trawool Reservoir - supplied water to the town of Seymour for around 80 years. The wall was built using granite from the immediate area, with a large square cut creating a man-made cliff face a few metres high, just behind the camera. Unused blocks also litter the site. The pipe to Seymour has been disconnected, so a small amount of water constantly trickles out of a failing valve at the bottom of the wall; when the reservoir is full, it simply overflows.
