Leftlake

Leftlake china clay pits sit on Ugborough Moor, north of Three Barrows, right beside the Two Moors Way, Zeal Tramway path that leads to Redlake. Like nearby Redlake this was a china clay works, the pit of which is now filled with water, there are a number of buildings to the west of the lake, there’s a bridge which would have carried the Puffing Billy railway and there’s also a small spoil heap. Its a fantastic place, remote and quiet.
