A flooded gravel pit, one of several in this section of the Wyre Valley, is visible through the trees on the left. A large proportion of the river valley here was excavated for gravel; I'm not sure when, but I suspect it was in the 1960s, when the nearby M6 motorway was constructed and required aggregate. Nowadays the pits provide an income for the local community, attracting sport fishermen.
