    The Explore
    Another early morning of explores started off with a visit to the water works, horrible weather and bleak peaks are never a good combination early in the morning.. A little disappointed by this place unfortunately and probably not worth the mission to get in there :)

    The History
    Fernilee was the first of the two reservoirs in the Goyt Valley. It was constructed in 1938 by Stockport Water Corporation, now part of North West Water, and cost £480,000. When full, the reservoir holds 4,900 million litres of water which supplies drinking water to Stockport and the surrounding towns.

    The water treatment works below the dam were constructed using stone from the demolished Errwood Hall.
