Parts of a village totally submerged last century when a new reservoir was created have re-emerged as water levels drop in the hot weather.
Usually underwater, remnants of West End have now appeared again at North Yorkshire’s Thruscross Reservoir.
The derelict village was consumed by the waters of the new reservoir when it was constructed in the 1960s.
Yorkshire Water, which owns and runs the site, urged people not to go on to areas which were normally submerged.
A spokesperson for Yorkshire Water said Thruscross, which sits below Harrogate and Otley, was at the top of a chain of reservoirs.
They added: “Water from it feeds into Fewston, Swinsty and down to Eccup. So, in a prolonged dry spell such as we’re having at the moment, and when it’s not being topped up by rainfall in the area, it’s not a surprise levels have dropped.”
The spokesperson warned that reservoirs posed a risk to life and people should still be careful around them.
“People should not be entering our reservoirs to swim, or onto parts that are usually submerged.
“They are functioning reservoirs and do pose a risk to people entering them, including cold water shock, undercurrents, unseen objects and machinery working under the water.”
