Excerpt from wikipeda:

Ladybower Reservoir is a large Y-shaped reservoir, the lowest of three in the Upper Derwent Valley in Derbyshire, England.

The building of the reservoir resulted in the ‘drowning’ of the villages of Ashopton and Derwent (including Derwent Woodlands church and Derwent Hall). The buildings in Ashopton were demolished before the reservoir was filled, but much of the structure of Derwent village was still visible during a dry summer some fourteen years later, especially the church clock tower. The spire was destroyed in the 1970s to prevent people from swimming out to it, and risking the potentially lethal undertow. When the waters of the reservoir are exceptionally low, the remains of the village can be seen on the floor of the reservoir.
