History

Unlike the recently formed flashes, Pick Mere ('the lake where pike are found') is a natural feature. It was formed as a hollow in the ground filled with melted ice at the end of the Ice Age. There were many such hollows, but most of them have long since dried out. Notice that the lake is called Pick Mere, but the village that sits beside it is Pickmere.
