NS7968 : Loch Grayrigg

taken 7 years ago, near to Plains, North Lanarkshire, Great Britain

Loch Grayrigg
Loch Grayrigg
No one else has given this body of water a label yet so why not name it after the nearby colliery of the nineteenth century?
The water is a result of open-cast coal mining of the 1990's and early 21st. century. The change in water level can be seen with NS7968 : Opencast workings from 2010.
