Titteswort Reservoir from The Roaches
Tittesworth Reservoir is the main water supply for the town of Leek. The present dam was built in 1963 and replaced a much smaller Victorian dam when the reservoir was used only to regulate the flow of water on the River Churnet for the town's textile industries. This view was taken from The Roaches, a gritstone edge which is just inside the Peak District National Park. (Canon EOS 60D, Sigma 17-70mm @ 40mm, 1/1250s @ f/6.3)
