No sailing today at Sutton Bingham Reservoir
No sailing today at Sutton Bingham Reservoir
The reservoir has been drained to allow strengthening of the dam (in the next grid square) which can be seen in the distance on the right. This is presumably after all the flooding in other parts of the country last year and concerns about dams failing. The causeway carrying the road and the bottom of the dam have been exposed> The sailing club is high and dry.
