This is the top lake of the two lakes on a nice clear sunny day. The lake itself is not very deep and has an abundance of wildlife. It is a very quiet, relaxing spot, where you can either take in the views or go for walk around the lakes. The walks takes you through the woods where there are more hidden surprises. Bursting with wild life, you may catch a glimpse of a rare species, a migrant bird. An ideal nature reserve, easily accessed from either the M25 or M23, good free parking, with refreshment available.
