SJ7720 : Aqualate Mere

near to Sutton, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Aqualate Mere
Aqualate Mere
Or, rather more accurately, a distant view of the mere. From the north side, it's actually quite hard to get to, as the mere is very shallow generally, and the shore is marshy for a long way out. So it's a case of wade, or put up with a distant view.
The mere itself is an Ice Age relic, a large kettle hole that formed when a remnant piece of the glacial icesheet remained embedded in the till, melting more slowly than the surrounding glacier. When it finally disappeared, it left a depression in the land which has been filled with water ever since.
