Yardley Hastings (East) Flood Storage Reservoir
Yardley Hastings (East) Flood Storage Reservoir
A local walker told me this reservoir had been there a long time, but wasn't sufficient, so another was built further down by farm buildings. This and a nearby reservoir seemed to have a surprising amount of instrumentation. It appears that they are in a catchment that has been studied extensively. It is part of the Grendon Brook Improvement Scheme which was shown on a map of River Nene and tributaries from Kettering council.
