Caption

Reservoir during drought. The dried up Hawes Water reservoir in Cumbria, UK, at the height of the exceptional English summer drought in September 1995. Stone walls of the former hamlet of Mardale Green, normally under 30 feet of water, are visible in the foreground. The tree covered hill (upper right) is normally an island in the reservoir. Hawes Water was flooded in 1940 to supply water to Manchester. The water level was raised by 96 feet, resulting in the flooding of the hamlet of Mardale Green.
