Kielder Reservoir


Kielder Reservoir 

Kielder reservoir was built between 1975 and 1981 for Northumbrian Water. It is the largest artificial lake in the United Kingdom and is surrounded by Kielder forest, the largest man-made forest in Europe which is a stronghold of red squirrels.
A village and several farms were submerged in the making of the lake 
The reservoir dam is home to hydro-electric power turbines.
The lake and surrounding forest is home to a tourist industry which attracts 250,000 people per year.
