A system for bringing water to Chudleigh town from the lower slopes of Haldon was in
existence at the end of the C16: both the supply system and the water known as 'Pot
Water'. In 1867 William Bower Scott presented a refinement of this system to the
Parish to improve the supply of water as both for cooking and extinguishing fires.
