Small pool at Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve, southeast of Coventry
The reserve is on the site of extensive sand and gravel extraction. Much of the tree cover is planted, I imagine as screening when the pits were active as well as an element of later restoration.
Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve
Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) consisting of 228 acres (92 ha) of pools, reedbeds, marsh and woodland. The pools alongside the river Avon occur as a result of a combination of subsidence of old underground colliery workings and later sand and gravel extraction, leaving pools in the disused gravel pits and settling pools.
