Description: SW side of Bottom Flash e. of Weavergreen, looking NW along valley side. Recent landslip scars show that subsidence due to salt solution may continue long after pumping of natural brine has ceased. Brine pumping at Winsford causes the Winsford 'flashes' - subsidence lakes where the River Weaver crosses subsided ground - and the pumping had virtually ceased some 20 years before the photograph was taken.
