A small site in North Lincolnshire of less than 10 ha. It was listed by the SPNR due to its 'blow wells' - artesian springs bubbling through the peat where they formed circular pools of ‘various sizes and great depth, always full but never overflowing. And the water was always moving.’ The site lay only 2 miles from Grimsby and as the town expanded the council acquired it and used it as a rubbish dump. It is now managed by North East Lincolnshire Council. The distinctive blow wells are gone and the bog itself was completely destroyed when it was turned into a municipal rubbish dump. However the Council are now undertaking some management to restore the site..
