Ash lagoon reclaimed by nature

Ash lagoon reclaimed by nature
Next to the mouth of the River Esk in East Lothian, the ash lagoons were created as a repository for the coal-ash from Cockenzie Power Station (now closed). The ash was pumped from the power station as slurry and settled out in these lagoons. Nature has now reclaimed the site.

Andy, Doug & Herb,

The "tripod" like thing sprayed out the ash slurry which formed the lagoon. When I first started going there they were like grey lakes with a crusty top! Now they're full of birds and wild flowers. The "scrapes" 10 minutes further along are a top spot for bird watchers too.
