The charity making life better by water

Boddington Reservoir

Surrounded by lovely Northamptonshire countryside, Boddington Reservoir is an oasis of water, greenery and wildlife. Just the place for family walks and budding nature detectives.

Boddington is one the many lakes and reservoirs we own and look after to supply the water to our canals - in this case the Oxford and Grand Union Canals.

Boddington Reservoir excels in its fishing. It's one of the South Midlands top match venues, a 65-acre reservoir where you are virtually guaranteed a catch. Anglers return here time and time again.

Things to see and do

While it's all about the picnics at the reservoir, the villages of Upper Boddington and Byfield are around half a mile away and offer a number of cafes and pubs.
