About this spot
Intensive drainage was undertaken in the 17th century with the digging of the two diversion channels of the Great River Ouse, the Old Bedford River and the New Bedford River and the creation of the Ouse Washes within. This resulted in the greatest change this landscape has seen to date. The area between the two Bedford Rivers is specifically designed to flood during times of excess water. This can create a lake-like feel to the landscape.
