Description

This reservoir was originally built to supply the nearby Grand Union Canal and a feeder channel runs between the two. A footpath runs between the channel and a small stream, giving access to the channel and several damp, marshy areas. The reservoir and area around it is particularly good for dragonflies as well as birds.
