The Parish’s Natural Resource…
The Colly Brook
- For hundreds of years the Colly provided power for the village through the mill pond and the leats to the waterwheels of three mills.
- The undiminished power of the river continues to run through Peter Tavy today, offering significant potential.
- The Colly Brook is naturally well suited as a source of hydropower. The significant head and flow indicate it could generate upto 100 kW, enough to power 100 homes.
