Fleet Lagoon with the tide out

By s1ngerman
The Fleet lagoon was formed when Chesil Beach moved onshore as the sea levels rose. In the past it was much larger than it is today. The Fleet is 13.1 km (8.2 miles) long and covers an area of 480 hectares. The width varies from 900 metres at Littlesea down to just 65 metres at The Narrows. The deepest part is in the lower Fleet where it is 4-5 metres deep. Most of the upper Fleet above The Narrows is no more than 2 metres deep. It was on the fleet that Barnes Wallace first tested his bouncing bombs used by the RAF in the Dambuster raids during WWII
