Hurleston Reservoir

1 miles (1.3 km)

This small reservoir sits in a lovely spot on the Llangollen branch of the Shropshire Union Canal near Nantwich.
There are grassy footpaths running alongside the pretty lake with the option to extend your walk along the adjacent canal towpath. Heading north would take you towards Barbridge while heading south will take you into Nantwich. The impressive Hurleston Lock flight is also located in the area.
The lake is also good for wildlife with various wildfowl visitors and fish.

Locks at the Hurleston flight, Cheshire. The Llangollen Canal joins the main line of the Shropshire Union canal at the bottom of this flight of four locks at Hurleston. This view shows the bottom mitre gates of the top lock (No 1) and the wide pound below it. This and the other three locks lower the water level by 34 feet and 3 inches (about 10.4 metres). The flat green area to the left encloses an enormous reservoir containing 85 million gallons (386 million litres) fed from the River Dee at Llantysilio, by way of the canal.
