Swamp on the River Len
Swamp on the River Len, taken 11 years ago
This looks like an overgrown millpond beside the Broomfield Road. There were 23 mills in the Len valley recorded in the Domesday Book so there may have been one here at one time, but not in the last 150 years or so. The river flows from here into the Great Water at Leeds Castle, about 300 metres west. Quite how all these saplings managed to germinate and grow in such a wet environment can only be guessed at.
