This walk takes you along the peaceful Bodenham Lake in Herefordshire. The creation of this picturesque wildlife site was funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the European Regional Development Fund. It won the Canal and Rivers Trust Living Waterways Award in 2019.
You can park at the car park at the eastern end of the lake to start your walk. Then pick up the trails heading along the northern side of the water.
The site is also a nature reserve where you can look out for a variety of water loving wildlife on the water. Over 160 species of birds have been recorded here while otters are regularly spotted. In particular look out for the cormorants perched in the surrounding trees or congregating on the island in the middle of the lake.
To the south of the lakes there's also a public footpath heading along the River Lugg. You can pick it up at Bodenham Bridge in the village on the eastern side od the site. Just to the west is the expansive Queenswood Country Park where there is a beautiful arboretum to explore.
