Gledhow Valley Lake, subsidence damage to drainage channel
1st September 1947. Image shows damage to stone lined drainage channel from the lake in Gledhow Valley.

This is the top of the stone-lined drainage channel which led the overflow from the lake down a series of steps into the bottom of the valley, where a culvert led the steam beneath the road. From there the beck followed the course of Gledhow Valley Road until it entered a second culvert which carried it back beneath the road to emerge near the Well House. The whole of this section is now carried in large underground pipes - creating an unsightly boggy area the stream used to drain. The lake lies just beyond the steps and Gledhow Valley Road runs just on the other side of the fence. As a child it was a great adventure to straddle the water as it flowed through the culverts and make our way along with our footsteps making a strange echo in the enclosed space.
