Kielder Water, Northumberland

Tucked away at the top of Northumberland, close to the Scottish Border and Hadrian's Wall, beautiful Kielder Water is the largest man-made lake in Europe.

The lake is owned by Northumbrian Water, and holds 200 billion litres of water to ensure the people and industry of North East England always have enough for their needs. Local tourist literature claims that if every person on Earth had their own toilet, each one could be flushed five times and still not enough water would have been used to empty Kielder Water.
