A lost beauty spot that was flooded to make a reservoir in the 1960s has emerged during the summer drought.

The hamlet of Goyt's Bridge, in Derbyshire, once lay on the tourism trail for Victorian visitors.

The hamlet was demolished in the 1930s to make way for the Errwood Reservoir but parts of it have reappeared due to low water levels.

Local history enthusiast David Stirling, who runs a website about the area, said he had used GPS on his phone, alongside old maps of the hamlet, to match some of the stonework to old photographs of the beauty spot.

He said: "Typically it has been gate posts and stone walls that have appeared.
