Kielder Reservoir is set to celebrate its 30th anniversary on May 26 and 27. It was in 1982 that the largest man-made lake in northern Europe was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth. Now, a range of activities are planned for the celebratory weekend. One of the highlights will be an exhibition called What the Reservoir means to Me, a show which tells deeply personal stories and encapsulates the reservoir’s history.
Kielder Water and Forest Park and Cawfields Car Park on Hadrian’s Wall have been named as prime locations to discover the wonders of the stars. They are among a small number of places in the UK that have been named as offering great and safe spots to explore the stars at the heavens by Dark Sky Discovery.
