Eyebrook Reservoir was formed by the damming of the Eye Brook. It was built between 1937 and 1940 by Stewarts & Lloyds to supply water to their Corby steel works. During the Second World War it was used in May 1943 as a practice site for the Dambuster raids in Germany.

It has been a trout fishery since 1942 and is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Eyebrook is an ideal place for bird watching.
