Marshland near Ness
Marshland near Ness
This gridsquare consists almost entirely of marshland, although there are three nice, secluded, buildings too. The sign in the picture says "Danger -Military Firing Range - Keep Out". Judging by the O/S map, the danger area covers approx 6 square kilometres. In the background, you can just make out two power stations (left & right) and the new Flintshire bridge (centre). Looking at the map for 1882, this area was still marshland, but there was a large channel just after the gridsquare, which has silted up.
