Goin to keep going back...see what other things appear from the depths!! No doubt there'll be some grim discoveries. Dread to think what might be in the boot of that car

Sounded like a load of bollox to me too the 1000year flood....health and safety gone mad.

I used to cycle up Belmont way when I was in my misspelt youth, this lagoon was to provide water for the mill and bleachworks in Belmont. The mill went long ago, but the bleachworkslasted until a couple of years back. It's a small industrial estate now.

I imagine the lower bits of the lagoon will be full of old cortina's and stuff!

It is a real shame, school holidays spent there up on the bikes and legging it off the pier!! I was there just the other day after checking out Charles Turner Paper Mills to see if it was do-able.


Always willing to learn, if someone is willing to teach!!

This was the nearest Blue Lagoon to where I grew up - on the Orgreave slag heap:
