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.
