The Derwent reservoir was used by the RAF’s Dambusters 617 Squadron to practice their low level flying techniques during 1943, in preparation for delivering Barnes Wallis’ famous bouncing bombs to German dams. The 617 Squadron Dambuster's Memorial is located just inside the gatehouse to the Western Tower of The Derwent Dam.
