Before Rutland Water

Thanks to BLDGBLOG for pointing us to the website Old UK Photos:
This is a brand new non commercial website, launched in July 2006. The idea is to display as many old photographs as we can of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The picture I have chosen shows the view across the Gwash valley in Rutland. It's not a picture you could take today as that valley was flooded in the 1970s to form Rutland Water.

I have wonderful memories of Rutland Water Jonathan, so it is lovely to see this pic as I never saw the valley before it was flooded.


PS Did you get to Shropshire?!

Yes, I'm now safely in Shropshire.
