Echo Sounder Reads 49 Feet On River Ant

Post by Miles »

Puzzled? You should be but it is true

There is a stretch of water between Moy's Mill and the private dyke at Wayford that will read a depth of 49 Feet just for a few feet.

So how is this possible?

According to locals this area was once part of a large estuary that stretched between West Somerton and Sea Palling.

Effectively, the reading of 49 Feet is likely to be the bed of that estuary.

Try it for yourself if you have an echo sounder.
