Wet Sleddale Reservoir is in the valley of Wet Sleddale, near Shap on the eastern fells. It was built to supply water to Manchester.

Photographically, it's not the most inspiring of locations, however there are good views of the whole reservoir from the fells above Sleddale Hall (the old farm, now deserted) and some nice details to be found alongside the lake.
