Earlswood Lakes

Earlswood Lakes

Earlswood Lakes are the perfect spot to explore your local waterside wildlife. Soak up the beautiful scenery while stretching your legs along the towpath, keep an eye out for the historic engine house, admire the striking sailing boats, or take a leisurely stroll down to the local craft centre.

Earlswood is actually made up of three 22-acre reservoirs together: Terry's Pool, Windmill Pool and Engine Pool. They're ideal for bird watching - look closely and you might even be lucky enough to spot the rare lesser-spotted woodpecker.
