This one's for the birds
This one's for the birds
Most of these old flooded gravel pits have been shared out amongst various leisure activities.
Sailors, fishermen, bird watchers, water skiers etc. all have their individual lakes so hopefully they don't disturb each other too much.
This is Vicarage Pit. It's a short distance away from the main group of pits. There's no water sports but there is a watching hide just by where I'm standing, accessed from an overgrown footpath, and it's all very peaceful.
