Thruscross Reservoir

Thruscross Reservoir

Thruscross reservoir was constructed in the 1960s and was completed in 1966. Flooding of the valley meant the loss of West End village, which disappeared beneath the waters. Sometimes, when there is a very severe drought, the water level drops sufficiently to expose the remains of the village and its stone bridge.
