D2036 : Loughareema, The Vanishing Lake

taken 19 years ago, 4 km from Torr, Northern Ireland

Loughareema, The Vanishing Lake
Loughareema, The Vanishing Lake
Loughareema sits on chalk and has a leaky bed. But the 'plughole' is bunged with peat and so the water can only percolate slowly down into the passage below. After heavy rain the streams draining off the adjacent hills, which are of schist, overwhelm the plughole and the lake fills.
