Abandoned ‘drowned villages’ digitally rebuilt 75 years after flooding


The ‘drowned villages’ which were abandoned and flooded by an enormous reservoir will be seen for the first time in 75 years.

Derwent and Ashopton have been digitally rebuilt by students, and a cache of rarely seen photographs will be displayed only a few miles from where the villages once stood.

The villages, which are now under the 27.8 million cubic metres of water in Ladybower Reservoir in Derbyshire, will also be remembered by the few remaining former residents.

Their memories will form another part of the photographic exhibition.
