SD6100 : Large Lake, Abram Flashes

taken 7 years ago, near to Bryn Gates, Wigan, Great Britain

Large Lake, Abram Flashes
Large Lake, Abram Flashes
This large lake (which I think may be called "Dover Flash") below the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, to the south of Abram, is one of a series of smaller subsidence flashes alongside the south and west side of the canal, between the Wigan Flashes and Pennington Flash.

The area has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest SSSI. It is locally important for wintering waterfowl which use the whole Wigan Flashes complex, and lower water levels, particularly in autumn, can provide valuable feeding and roosting habitat for migrant waders.
