I continued through the forest towards Blakemere Moss.
We have had a lot of rain recently and I wanted how it has effected the pool.
Blakemere Moss was drained around 1815 supposedly by prisoners from the Napoleonic Wars during the 19th century and was unsuccessfully planted with oak and later with Scots pine.
In the 1990's the trees were removed but the stumps remain.
This was the path through the forest before the trees were felled and the dams removed
Under a grey winter sky it had lost some of it's magical prehistoric appearance.
I have added a few of my images from 3 months ago to show the changes.
The first 2 are taken from the same spot as the ones above.
