Normanton Church Rutland Water

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

This is an aerial view of the Normanton Church in the UK's East Midlands region.  Normanton was flooded in the 70's to create the Rutland Water reservoir, part of a hydroengineering scheme that provides water as well as hydroelectric power water to the region.  Originally planned to be demolished to make way for the lake, but public protest eventually resulted in sufficient renovation to raise the structure and allow it to survive as an "island" on what is now one of the UK's largest artificial lakes.
