Photo Diary : Geocaching around Blackbrook Reservoir

Geocaching we found another awesome site a few miles away from our house - Blackbrook Reservoir. The reservoir was constructed in 1976 to feed the local Charnwood Forest Canal. It's now a Site of Special Interest as fossils discovered there were the first to be identified as 'macroscopic remains of Precambrian life', what ever that means (GC10GBA).

The reservoir was actually constructed in 1799.
