On the 1st of August 2019, following 48-hours of unprecedented rainfall, the dam at Toddbrook Reservoir was in danger of bursting as the concrete spillway began collapsing under a torrent of floodwater.
Engineers, the armed forces, Police, Fire Service, Canal & River Trust, Environment Agency and hundreds of local volunteers raced towards Whaley Bridge to help avert a disaster, to stop Toddbrook Reservoir from collapse and flooding the towns and villages along the Goyt Valley.
