Fernilee construction gallery

My thanks to the Whaley Bridge Local History Group for allowing me to display these photos of the Fernilee Reservoir construction site. They include some fascinating detail, particularly of the ruins of the old gunpowder mill. Many were taken during the early stages of the project. But there are also later photos, such as the opening ceremony in 1936. (Click here to view a film of the 1932 inauguration ceremony.)
