Entrance to Hanson Claydon Pike Works and Coln Country Park
This is the entrance both to Hanson Aggregates Claydon Pike Works and to Coln Country Park. The gravel pit to the right of this entrance has been flooded to form Coln Park Lake, which is home to Bowmoor Sailing Club. Coln Country Park is part of the Cotswold Water Park Fairford/Lechlade Section. To the south of the lake, gravel is being extracted by Hanson Aggregates Ltd.
