No Bathing.

I took the photograph of this cast iron sign at Derwent Reservoir in the Peak District, it was actually on the Dam itself. It made me smile because it was here, and at Lady Bower reservoir further down the valley, that the 617 Squadron practiced for their raids on the Ruhr Dams in Germany during the second world war, and the thought of getting fined for having a bath was nothing compared to a 222mph bouncing bomb heading straight for you!
