Floods of 1964
Heavy rain in July 1964 caused a flood which destroyed much of the brookside footpath at the bottom of the valley. The valley has since recovered, though the area affected is now somewhat waterlogged.
On the north west side of the valley is Musbury Heights. In the past, this area was a quarry and is now disused. The ruins of several buildings and a (rebuilt) chimney remain along with a number of spoil heaps and old workings. As a result of the extensive quarrying, the geography of Musbury Heights is different to other hills in the area such as Musbury Tor. Some of the old workings have the tendency to fill with water in times of heavy rain. The area is visited by walkers, and is a starting point for a walk to the Grane valley.
