The crystal blue azure water in this lake may look like a tropical paradise but it's actually pollution that gives the lake its inviting hue. And the water is a toxic soup nearly as strong as bleach that contains dead animals, excrement, car wrecks and rubbish.
But, in an alarming development, parents have begun taking their children to swim in the poisonous, water-filled, disused quarry and ignoring signs warning of 'car wrecks' and 'dead animals' in the water.
Another warning sign tells visitors that high pH levels in the water can cause skin, eye and stomach irritations, rashes and thrush.
Boards even tell them the the pH level in the lake on Harpur Hill, in The Peak District, known locally as the Blue Lagoon is 11.3 and that bleach is 12.6 while ammonia is 11.5.
This reminds me of when i was in Turkey, I was swimming in the sea (the waves were very rough, i wasn't too far out) and a condom washed up right next to me. I got out as quick as I could ;o horrible...
