Cowbit Wash, Cowbit, Lincolnshire

Cowbit Wash, Cowbit, Lincolnshire

Cowbit Wash lies to the west of the village and extends north-south for 8 miles.

It was a flood plain for the River Welland, separated from the village by an earth bank that carries an unclassified road. Previously the Welland overflowed regularly with the water freezing in wintertime.

A relief channel (Coronation Channel) was constructed at Spalding and Cowbit Wash had not been used since the 1950s.

During the 1800s speed skating championships were held on the frozen plain.
