SD5544 : Collapse in Boggy Wood

taken 7 years ago, 3 km from Calder Vale, Lancashire, Great Britain

Collapse in Boggy Wood
Collapse in Boggy Wood
Trees on both sides of the River Brock have fallen.
Presumably, the river has undercut the bank on the nearside (south), causing the trees on the south side to fall first.
However, it is possible that the trees on the opposite (north) bank fell first, diverting the river flow and causing the landslip.
