Orange Swamp at Parrot's Drumble
Orange Swamp at Parrot's Drumble
The stream (or drumble) running through the delightfully named woods at Parrot's Drumble is contaminated by iron-oxide from the old mine-workings in the area, hence the lovely colour. When the stream overflows it forms what the locals call "The Orange Swamp".
