TL5191 : Straight Drain

taken 10 years ago, 3 km from Welney, Norfolk, Great Britain

Straight Drain
Straight Drain
This large drain runs at right angles to the Old Bedford River, and is much lower, running across Manea Fifties at just below sea level. In the foreground the water gives way to silt. The pipes shown in TL5191 : Pipes by the Old Bedford River presumably take water up from the drain in times of flood, using the pumping station to the right. In the distance are buildings at Elderwood Farm on the B1093.
