Episode 13 "The Carpenter's Noose" was filmed at Miracle Lake.
In November 1997, Dominica experienced several weeks of prolonged heavy rain which precipitated a massive landslide in the interior. This formed three dams blocking a northern tributary of the Layou River. The lower dam burst after about a week of continued heavy rain, the second burst a few days later. These flooded the Layou River, depositing huge amounts of tarish and sand, temporarily raising the level of the river bed by up to 30 feet in places. The rear dam did not burst and has consolidated, leaving a new lake with a much larger surface area than either the Freshwater or Boeri Lakes and reaching a maximum depth of 140 feet. This lake may be viewed from the end of the road at the edge of the escarpment left by the landslide, reached via a feeder road just east of the Layou River Hotel. Though officially named the Mathia Dam, the local landowner has christened this area 'Miracle Valley'. The rear shore of the lake by be reached via a hiking trail from the Cuba Road which loops up into the hills from Mero to Salisbury on the mid west coast.
And this: in 1997, on a section of river downstream from us where it is joined by the Mathieu River, there was a series of dramatic landslides that changed the landscape completely. The two rivers meet in a gorge where the cliffs are incredibly tall and, upstream from this junction, the valley walls of the Mathieu River suddenly collapsed, sliding into the river and down into the gorge where the two rivers meet. A dam was created, plugging the Mathieu River though the Layou continued to flow. Today the Mathieu River is still blocked and a large lake has formed in the river valley behind the landslide dam. That lake is still there today. Some call it Miracle Valley, others call it Lake Mathieu. (From this excellent Dominican blog
