Swinsty Reservoir
Swinsty Reservoir

The Washburn Valley was a busy farming and light industrial area before the building of the reservoirs in the early 20th century, though it's likely that the population would have fallen even without the reservoirs. The many footpaths in the area show the close links that existed between the various parts of the community.
