Flooded quarry workings, Bestwall near Wareham, Dorset
Extraction of sand and gravels ran from 1992 and ceased in November 2005. During this time the Bestwall Quarry Archaeology Project has made remarkable discoveries about the 10 000 year history of this part of Dorset. The area is not shown as flooded on OS maps ca. 2005 but this may be seen from the satellite image on Google Earth. The lakes are in the process of being landscaped and will provide a varied and secure habitat for birds and other wildlife.
