ST4539 : The South Drain

taken 10 years ago, near to Meare, Somerset, Great Britain

The South Drain
The South Drain
Taken from the old railway bridge, this shows the South Drain as it flows northwards to meet the Glastonbury Canal. Both then head west-north-west across the Somerset Levels towards the Bristol Channel.

On the left is part of Walton Heath. More specifically, the area seen in the photograph is a former peat excavation area which was known as 'Signal Pole' and was worked by Fisons PLC. A lot of the fields or 'grounds' where peat excavation took place were given names. It is now flooded and forms part of the Ham Wall Reserve.
