    Impressive, especially when water level is high, you have a feeling that water goes straight in the centre of the earth

    Ingenious technology to build an overflow. Looks amazing when the dam is full.

    Ladybower Reservoir served as a testing ground for bombers during the Second World War, and the area is littered with the broken remains of aircraft, which have crashed over the years. According to sightings some of these flights may be subject to ghostly re-runs. A plane identified as a Lancaster Bomber has been seen by several witnesses in the area. One witness also reported a plane that crashed in a ball of fire, although nothing was found, even after a thorough search of the moorland. Another candidate for ghostly flights is a United States Air force Dakota, which crashed on the 24th July 1945 killing all of its 8 crew, on a spot close to where the Lancaster Bomber came down.Although these are the most readily identified with the ghostly flights, there have been many crashes in the area, most of them during the Second Word War.The area has also been the focus for strange lights in the sky, the sightings of these and the ghostly planes may be related in some way.
