Ruins of ‘lost church’ exposed at Ladybower Reservoir

Published45 minutes agoSharecloseShare pageCopy linkAbout sharingImage source, Terry WestermanRuins thought to be a church that was submerged by the creation of a reservoir have been revealed due to low water levels.The village of Derwent in Derbyshire was flooded in the 1940s by the creation of Ladybower Reservoir.The church spire was originally left intact as a memorial but was demolished in 1947 because of safety concerns.The bell can still be heard ringing, as it was re-hung in St Philip's Church in Chaddesden, in Derby.Terry Westerman, from Barnsley, photographed the ruins when he visited the reservoir on Wednesday.The lost villages of the Derwent ValleyThe villages buried in a 'watery grave'"To be honest I were a bit shocked at how low it was," he said."I found one or two artefacts, not anything valuable, things left from the village. There were one or two bits of iron. I picked one up and it looked like an old gate catch."Image source, Russ TealeImage source, Phoebe Cajote WoodLadybower Reservoir was at 54.5% of its capacity as of 8 August, according to water company Severn Trent.Customers have been asked not to use more water than necessary following the warm and dry weather."Our region has experienced the driest July in a century," a Severn Trent spokesperson said."We're asking people to be mindful of their water use, as small behavioural changes can add up to a big difference."Howden Reservoir, also in Derbyshire, was at only 14.6% of its capacity as of 8 August.Ralph Goodson, who lives in Matlock, often drives there for a picnic and has noticed the water getting lower this year."Last week we visited for the first time since April and although we knew there hadn't been much rain recently, we were shocked to see that Howden is now almost empty," he said.Image source, Ralph GoodsonImage source, Ralph GoodsonThe ruins thought to be Derwent's church, along with other remains of the village, were also exposed by low water levels in 2018.At the time, the ruins of the stately home of Derwent Hall could also be seen.The rare sight attracted people to the area and one man had to be rescued after he got stuck in the mud while inspecting the ruins.The village of Ashopton was also lost when Ladybower Reservoir was created in order to provide the growing cities of Derby, Sheffield, Nottingham and Leicester with water.Image source, Severn Trent WaterFollow BBC East Midlands on Facebook, on Twitter, or on Instagram.
