Stoke Lakes Thunderbridge Reservoir in Lincolnshire is fed by the Cringle Brook and bounded by a dam. It is not in every day service and is there to supply the Saltersford Water Treatment Works in Grantham in times of drought. Saltersford was once fed by the River Witham but now gets its raw supplies from Rutland Water via a pipeline which runs adjacent to the A1. This is just one small part of the huge network of engineering required to keep our region’s taps flowing!
