This scene depicts 'Crime Lake' as in 1942, but is very different now.
Many tales are told of the place.
The facts are 'Crime' is derived from an Anglo Saxon word 'Crymel', meaning 'a small stretch of land or water'.
This lake was formed about 1794, after the great storm which swept England.
It supplied water to the Fairbottom Canal, opened in 1797.
