SK7904 : Launde Middle Reservoir

taken 7 years ago, near to Launde Abbey, Leicestershire, Great Britain

Launde Middle Reservoir
Launde Middle Reservoir
The middle of a series of three small reservoirs below Launde Abbey. Apparently they were originally fishponds for the Abbey. They are now badly affected by algae, probably due to the runoff from the Abbey's septic tank just above the top pond.

This view is from the earth embankment of the upper reservoir SK7904 : Launde Upper Reservoir - overflow.
