Tai Tam Byewash Reservoir

Workmen’s Quarters and ruins of Senior Staff Bungalow

12 March 2017

The Workmen’s Quarters and the ruins of the Senior Staff Bungalow are at the top of a small hill to the south-west of Tai Tam Byewash Reservoir dam. The workmen’s quarters consist of a long narrow rectangular single-storey block with red brick walls and a pitched roof of Chinese tiles. A brick privy is built on to the south end. Door and window openings have simple concrete lintels. The building is uninhabited, derelict and falling into ruin from lack of care and maintenance. The ruins of the bungalow simply consist of some steps, the granite foundations and the ground floor slab. The structural walls have been demolished and pieces left scattered around the ruins.
