SD5401 : Island Dam

near to Garswood, St Helens, Great Britain

Island Dam
Island Dam
The locals call the lake in the north west of this grid square Island Dam but the modern OS map doesn't show its name. Its interesting that the 1940's OS map shows an island towards the north end of the lake which is no longer there. An older 1849 map shows the area as marshy and liable to flooding and shows the name Island Dam but not a distinct lake. It seems the water level has risen over the years.
