NY7088 : Kielder Dam

near to Falstone, Northumberland, Great Britain

Kielder Dam
Kielder Dam
Kielder Reservoir is the largest artificial lake in the United Kingdom by capacity and it is surrounded by Kielder Forest, the largest man-made woodland in Europe. The earth dam at Kielder was built using retaining wall anchor techniques. It is 170 feet high and three quarters of a mile wide. There is a lot of material in that shallow repose bank of earth. There needs to be as there's a lot of water to retain. LinkExternal link
