Rossdale’ at Howes Creek. The watertank stand, aka ‘The Poppet Legs’, with butcher’s shop at ground level. A measure of the sturdiness with which this watertank was built and secured into the gound, is that the legs were considered to be too difficult to take out when Eildon Weir was extended and ‘Rossdale’ was flooded, in spite of the fact that they would be significant hazard to boating, especially when just submerged. In 1968 when the water level of the weir was very low for the first time the ‘poppet legs’ could be seen intact and rising from the mud.
