Impression of Great Reservoir Scheme

Two farms which will be engulfed

Left: Layer Brook - this little stream will become a mighty lake 50 feet deep. Beyond the ford is Butler's Farm, more common known as Buttles, which will be submerged.

Right: The other farm which will be sumerged, Billetts, now unoccupied owing to lack of water. It never rains but it pours!
