Who Stole All The Water Then?


This is the lake at Highfields Park. Well what's left of it, as for the last couple of weeks, the water has been slowly draining away, but no one quite knows why.  There have been various theories; the warm weather, low rainfall. Even dredging. although none has yet taken place.

But most locals agree that it is down to the nearby tramworks. Apparently they have been building the line on marshy ground, and have diverted the underground streams that fed into the lake, and so the water is disappearing, gallon by gallon.
