Description"This was towards the end of the long hot summer of 2018 when water levels were unusually low and the walls and roads of the old village of Mardale Green could be seen. Work to build the dam started in 1929. Before the valley was flooded in 1935, all the farms and dwellings of the villages of Mardale Green and Measand were demolished. A full description of the work can be seen at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haweswater_Reservoir incliding maps of how the lake increased in size after it became a reservoir. This view is near the head of Haweswater, looking past the wooded slopes of The Rigg to the impressive crags of Harter Fell at the head of the valley on the left. The remains of Mardale Green can be seen on the beach just ahead." Photo by Marathon, 2018.
