Castle Carrock Reservoir
View from the dam, taken on an open day to celebrate the reservoir's centenary. It was built to provide a reliable clean water supply to Carlisle, which it did for over 50 years. Increasing demand in the city meant additional water had to be extracted from the River Eden. Today the reservoir supplies water to the area north and east of Carlisle, as far as the border with Scotland, and is a supplementary source for Carlisle and Caldbeck.
