In 1976 the opening of Rutland Water (previously Empingham Reservoir) created Anglian Water's largest reservoir serving Eastern England. The Gwash valley was flooded to create the reservoir; Nether Hambleton and most of Middle Hambleton were demolished and their wells were plugged as part of the ground preparation. Their neighbouring village of Upper Hambleton survived, and now sits on a peninsula within the lake known as the Hambleton Peninsula.
The Jacobean style Old Hall in Middle Hambleton (built in 1611) is now situated on the water's edge.
