Enjoy a stroll along these three reservoirs and into the adjacent woodland on this lovely walk in Solihull. There's a good footpath running along the lakes which includes a visit to Terry's Pool. This wildlife reserve, has a rich variety of plant and animal life including otters and turtles. Along the shore you'll see lots of pretty willow trees and plants such as great willowherb, betony, gipsywort and yellow flag iris. The walk also takes you into the delightful
Clowes Wood Nature Reserve. Here you will find heathland, woodland, wildflowers and wet meadow. Look out for a variety of birdlife including jay, chiff chaff, nuthatch and treecreeper, woodcock and three types of woodpeckers.
If you'd like to continue your walking in the area then you could pick up the Solihull Way which starts at the lakes. The Stratford Upon Avon Canal is also nearby so this is another place where you can enjoy more waterside walks.
Just a few miles to the east of the lake you will find the National Trust owned Packwood House. There's grounds of the 16th century house include a pretty lake, herbaceous borders, wildflower meadows, splendid topiary and a beautiful orchard.
