We were wondering where to go for last outing of the summer… this pub, that pub??? But we don’t need a pub, do we… lets just think about a nice spot. Bingo, Fernilee Reservoir; there is a nice bit of tarmac road to nowhere in particular, and now the Toddbrook Dam emergency is over, a celebratory dance on a dam seems appropriate. It must be said, the passers-by looked somewhat bemused, not least the two mininbus-loads of outdoor activity youths.
For the historically-inclined: history of Fernilee Reservoir.
