TM2885 : Yew Tree Lake, Waveney Valley Lakes

taken 35 years ago, near to Homersfield, Suffolk, Great Britain

Yew Tree Lake, Waveney Valley Lakes
Yew Tree Lake, Waveney Valley Lakes
The lakes at Waveney Valley were first excavated in 1942 to provide materials for the construction of local airfields as part of the war effort, and have been fisheries since the 1960s: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . A number of lakes have been added in recent decades as the site has become a centre for luxury fishing lodges and holiday caravans.

This photo was taken whilst the development of lodges and caravan pitches at the site was still in its infancy - with none on this lake at that time. The Yew trees which shaded the SE corner of this lake, after which it was named, were removed the year before this photo was taken.
