Bull Brook: Savernake Pond silt trap
Bull Brook: Savernake Pond silt trap
Just before Bull Brook flows into Savernake Pond there is this large silt trap which catches water-borne sediments brought down from Bracknell Forest before they can reach the lake and silt it up. The water flow is slowed right down, partially by weirs at either end and partially by spreading the water out over a large area across the trap, to enable sediments from the water to drop to the bed. The silt is then periodically cleared out of the sump. Unfortunately, being open and next to the public car park for Savernake Park, the trap attracts a fair share of non-water-borne deposits...
