Fishermen's Shame

Published 18th of October, 2019

The other day we popped down to see what Evretou looked like now that the reservoir water levels had receeded. We couldn't believe the mess we found when we got there...

From A Distance


From a distance the Evretou Reservoir looks beautiful. And it is. You can see a white line where the water meets land. this shows how much the water has receeded from when it was full. This time last year it was a LOT emptier than that!

To get to Evretou, you have to approach from the direction of Scarfos Bridge. It is a pleasant drive which only gets challenging after rain.

However, as you approach the abandoned village, the beauty develops quite a lot of cracks.


This was under water not that long ago, so this crap is recent.

Old Mosque


The village itself is still great fun to explore. You can see how far the water came up the walls of the mosque.

Rubbish Everywhere

We appreciate that a tour of recycling points won't make scintilating viewing, so we took the scenic route to bring you some pictures of the countryside too...

Evretou is Cut Off!

Now that the Asprokremmos has well and truly overflowed, we thought we would pay another visit to our old friend Evretou.
