Uk’s lost city of Atlantis is re-appearing after dry september 2014.
Mardale Green, a small city, was flooded in the 1930s to create a large water reservoir to serve Manchester. After the driest September for half a century, the Haweswater reservoir water level has dropped significantly revealing structures of the old sunken city.
Mardale Green, a village drowned during the 1930s reappears after almost 90 years out of the Haweswater reservoir. The Lake District’s ‘Atlantis’ is revealed!
A hidden village which has rarely been seen since the 1930s is slowly rising from its watery grave. Mardale Green , in Cumbria, disappeared in 1935 when the valley was flooded to make way for the Haweswater Reservoir, which would later serve Manchester with water.
Hundreds of people were evicted from their homes and most of the village’s buildings were blown up by Royal Engineers who used them for demolition practice. With the warmest September since 1960, the remains of the small English Atlantis is rising from the abyss to light again!
Climate change has also its good sides! Take care!
