The valley of Mardale in the Lake District and an entire community with its homes, farms, church, shops and the Dun Bull hotel all disappeared when the valley was dammed and flooded in 1935 to create Haweswater lake. Only rarely, when the water levels are low, do the remains of the old buildings emerge like ghosts from the depths. This book provides a pictorial history of events leading up to the flooding and reminds us that this was a community where people lived their lives, loved and worked for centuries before it was all demolished and put underwater.
