Concealed #midnighthaiku

When the reservoirs of the Derwent Valley in Derbyshire were built, the villages of Ashopton and Derwent were lost beneath the water. When levels are low, traces of the villages can still be seen.

  1. People here return to such places, too. Just to see and remember where they played as kids

    The haiku and the photograph are both very evocative. It’s strange to think of a “ghost village” hidden under the water. It reminds me a little of the movie Brigadoon.

    Your haiku is fantastic. It’s rather eerie to think of two whole villages underwater.
