Lost World - Haunting picture album reveals the lost villages of Ashopton and Derwent in Derbyshire.<br />
<br />
A set of remarkable photos of a 'drowned' British village which has been under water for the past 74 years has come to light.<br />
<br />
The lost village of Ashopton was once an idyllic rural retreat in north Derbyshire but it was demolished in 1943 to make way for a large reservoir.<br />
<br />
The photo album reveals what the quaint village, which had a population of about 100 people, looked like in the late 19th and early 20th century before it became the Derbyshire Atlantis. <br />
<br />
It boasted a 17th century hall, a Victorian steepled church, a toll cottage, a Georgian coaching inn and dozens of cottages.
