Water End Swallow Holes: Sinkhole basin
Water End Swallow Holes: Sinkhole basin
Please see TL2304 : Water End Swallow Holes SSSI. This is the sinkhole basin where surface water accumulates to form a lake during times of flood. As the flood recedes the floodwater gradually drains back into the natural sinks. This is also effectively the source of the River Colne which eventually flows into the River Thames here TQ0371 : Outlet of Wraysbury River and River Colne and here TQ0371 : The River Colne meets the River Thames.

Someone has considered it to be a good idea to throw an old chair and a large broken plastic container into the middle of the basin.
