The line of the beck that was revealed by the deep soil cores is evident during a modest flood. The old route and its course to the Ings is the first to flood as water rises.

The upwelling is at the spot where the old route reached the Ings (see map at the top of the page).

 This might be an old culvert built when the bridge was built and the beck re-routed. No records of this work can be traced.

This photo was taken from the Stone bridge, the old course of the beck runs between some raised land and the modern route.

We have been trying to identify a causeway on this higher ground which was possibly used until about 7th century.

A full interpretation of the landscape of 1066 will be published during 2007. The flooding pattern help to confirm the model developed from all of the bore-holes.
