Lakeside Boulevard, Doncaster

An artificial lake created as part of the leisure and business development of the surrounding area in the mid 1990s. Prior to this, the site was occupied by fields with straight and regular edges indicative of parliamentary enclosure. It was part of High Ellers Common prior to enclosure in 1779 by the 'Cantley, Branton, Bessacarr and (High) Ellers' award. Legibility of the former landscape is invisible.
