The picture below, dated late 1943, two shows B24-Liberators with P47 Thunderbolts as escorts, flying over Poringland Lakes (bottom right) on their way to Flixton airfield.

The following photo, taken in 1946, shows the sand and gravel workings that eventually became Poringland Lakes. 

This aerial photo, taken in 2004, shows the more familiar outline of the lakes before they were redeveloped over a decade later.
