Nutscale Water

Nutscale Water is created by the combined flows of Chetsford Water and Embercombe Water. From its source Nutscale Water flows in a north easterly direction to reach Nutscale Reservoir which was created in 1942 by the construction of a dam. From the dam the waters flow in a northerly direction  through the valley between Tar Ball Hill and Babe Hill. After approximately 2000 metres it changes direction to south westerly and continues to the south side of Ley Hill. At some point in its journey, probably near to Pool bridge where the waters from Pool Combe join, it changes name to Horner Water.

Its journey from Embercombe to Pool bridge is approximately 4.5 kilometres with a fall in elevation of close to 110 metres and together with the waters of Chetsford and Horner the journey to the sea is approximately 15 kilometres.
