For public safety, prior to your visit  we advise that you  contact the site with regards to the high water levels and accessibility around the lake due to  the excessive rain and winds suspected  over the weekend. Tel: 01924 302360

Lake now open

The algae has dispersed naturally over the last few weeks due to the change of the weather. 

Recent water tests are now back to normal levels. 

Some small pockets of algae remain on the shore side and as a precautionary measure, we advise that dog owners keep their animals away from the water.
