Mardale Green in Cumbria disappeared in 1935 when the Mardale Valley was flooded to make way for the Haweswater Reservoir which would serve Manchester with water. Farm buildings, pubs and even a church and its graveyard were dismantled stone by stone. Pictured is how the village appeared before it was flooded
16th February 2015 and I saw a host of golden daffodils along the country road as we drove down to the riverside pub for lunch........ they were beautiful on a cold day and brought a feeling of warmth and hope of spring around the corner.
The Mitre Tavern, between Hatton Garden and Ely Place. It bears a stone mitre carved on the front with the date 1546. Ely Place still has its own Watchman who closes the gates a ten o’clock and cries the hours through the night.
