Grafham Water reservoir viewed from the west. Note Paxton Pits lying in the Ouse Valley to the east (at the top of the photo).
The west end of the reservoir. The swan-neck-shaped creek to the north is Savages. Following the shore south, there is Littless and Dudney Creeks, with Valley Creek being at the foot of the picture.
The dam at the east end of the reservoir, showing Brampton Wood to the north and Marlow Car Park on the northern shore of the reservoir.
The lagoons. These settlement lagoons are used to filter the sediment from the reservoir water.
The north shore. Hill Farm is visible at the south end, along with the water tower in the bottom right corner. Marlow Car Park can be seen to the north.
The south shore. The village of Perry can be seen, capped by the lagoons. Valley Creek is in the bottom of the photo.
