Carsington Water


This is Carsington Water, Derbyshire.  It is a reservoir that was is managed by The Severn Trent Water Company and was opened in 1992.  It is a popular birding spot with a number of different facilities and apparently receives over a million visitors a year. The reservoir was formed by damming the Scow Brook, but in fact most of the water in the reservoir is pumped via a 10 km long aquaduct from the River Derwent, and enters the reservoir by the control tower (in the background of the photo above).

Boots and Paws have posted a number of photographs of the reservoir here.  Cousin Roo accompanied me on the 13,5 km walk around the reservoir, during which we successfully did a bit of Geocaching.  It looks like a good cycling spot - next time I hope to do the route on my bike.
