The River Stour can be seen in this wide valley. It has taken a winding course, over a long period of time, forming great U shaped meanders (bends). Some of these meanders have then formed into oxbow lakes. The river has taken a new course across the neck of the 'U' and detached the meander from the river to become a lake.

The River Stour provides two reasonable oxbow examples in this shot

Stonar Camp was a World War I army camp. The site is now largely lost under ballast works which have extended the North Lake. Before World War I Roman coins, swords and other remains had been found near Stonar House, also demolished following the development of the site
