Just before Plover Cove reservoir, there is a village called
Lung Mei. This village offers a various choice of Chinese and Thai restaurants, shops
to rent bicycles.
This walled house contain small windows to be able to put the gun through.
Due to the poor accessibility of the villages at northeast New Territories, many villagers
have moved out during 1960 and 1970s.
Plover Cove reservoir
Plove Cove reservoir is built in the sea. It is
a dam of 2.1 km built to connect the Pak Sha Tau Chau and Tai Mei Tuk.
The inner bay "Plover Cove" was blocked by the dam and then all the water in the bay was pumped
out and filled in with freshwater.
Fishing is allowed in Plover Cove reservoir.
It has the richest variety of fresh-water fish of all Hong Kong reservoirs.
Before the construction of reservoir, there were six villages in the
Plover Cove area. All of them fished or cultivated for living. After the construction of the reservoir,
all the buildings and farmlands were flooded and all the villagers migrated to Tai Po Market.
The government built 10 buildings to help them to settle down at Tai Po Market.
Every male of the villages was distributed a flat.
The buildings were completed and the removal accomplished by end of year 1966.
Local youngsters transform their bicyles into customized bikes
with speakers to listen to music while riding.
