Hidden Histories

Event date:
1:30 pm
Catcleugh Reservoir Entrance, NE19 1TX

Find out about the fascinating history of Catcleugh Reservoir and visit the Black House, the last remaining dwelling that was built to house the reservoir construction workers and their families in the late 19th Century.

Lovingly restored it contains many artefacts of the period. We will also take a short stroll through the woodland to the Dam Wall to view the reservoir, passing some remarkable features of Victorian engineering on the way. We will also visit Byrness Church and the Old School.
