HAWESWATER SUBMERGED VILLAGE
Haweswater is a reservoir to the far east of the Lake District where submerged villages lie just beneath the surface of the water. The valley was flooded in 1935 to supply Manchester with water and to this day when the water levels are low, what remains of the villages become visible once more.
This valley was home to the last remaining Golden Eagles in England. Unfortunately, sightings have become unbelievably rare adding to the general consensus that the lone male bird may have died. There is talk of reintroducing eagle chicks back into this landscape as well as a program of habitat restoration which is currently underway and has the possibility of attracting new birds to the valley.
