I’m building up quite a collection of links to stories about drowned villages reappearing after long droughts. Here’s another one – Derwent under Ladybower reservoir which is visible now, though is pretty muddy. Some poor chap got stuck in the mud and had to be rescued. My characters in The Drowned Village thankfully did not get stuck (oops, spoiler!)
Edited 25th November – sadly it seems someone’s vandalised Derwent, while it was exposed…
And here’s a lovely bit of video of a drowned village that’s still underwater, set to haunting music. Watch out for the gravestones.
