Marston Vale, Bedfordshire

Marston Vale
Marston Vale is located in the county of Bedfordshire, England. The
Vale was once home to the London Brick Company and was one of the key
brick making districts in England. The claypits in the Vale are long
since exhausted, but at one point there were almost 170 brick chimneys
in Marston Vale. The area has undergone regeneration is now home to
the Forest of Marston Vale, run by the Marston Vale Trust. The former
claypits are now lakes. The forest spans 61 square miles and contains
areas of lakes and wetlands which are home to a variety of birdlife,
including the Lapwing and Redshank.
