The village of westend was flooded when the damn was created, the bodies were exhumed from the graveyard and burried elsewhere, however tales of manifestations and hauntings still occur.
Once a year the villagers were told to turn a large stone, It is said that if they fail to do so, disaster and ill-fortune will strike the region - one legend says the last time the village forgot to rotate the stone was just before it was flooded. :twisted:

Given a watch on his tenth birthday. It was an ordinary grey plastic wrist watch in every respect except for the fact that it was counting down. "That is all of the time you have left in the world, son. Use it wisely." And indeed he did. As the watch ticked away, the boy, now a man, lived life to the fullest. He climbed mountains and swam oceans. He talked and laughed and lived and loved. The man was never afraid, for he knew exactly how much time he had left. Eventually, the watch began its final countdown. The old man stood looking over everything he had done, everything he had built. 5. He shook hands with his old business partner, the man who had long been his friend and confidant. 4. His dog came and licked his hand, earning a pat on the head for its companionship. 3. He hugged his son, knowing that he had been a good father. 2. He kissed his wife on the forehead one last time. 1. The old man smiled and closed his eyes.

Then, nothing happened. The watch beeped once and turned off. The man stood standing there, very much alive. You would think that in that moment he would have been overjoyed. Instead, for the first time in his life, the man was very scared. :twisted:

To add to the spookiness, just under the surface of the water lurk these!

I'm still not sure if I'll be able to make it: I'll only know by late tomorrow afternoon.

Cheers,

Great walk with magical diversion for some. Fireworks were awesome with sounds echoing around the reservoir bowl. Thanks for buns Helen. Pub afterwards was a bit weird, slaughtered lamb.......
