Earlswood Lakes

UK»England»Warwickshire»Earlswood Lakes

Earlswood Lakes are three attractive large reservoirs set in pleasant wooded countryside next to the village of Earlswood to the south of Solihull. The Lakes were formed in 1821 to feed the Stratford Canal and have become an important local recreation site. Earlswood Lakes Partnership was formed in 1997 to act as a steering group for the management of the lakes. The footpaths in and around the area have all been part of the new improvements made by British Waterways here. Footpaths run around and in between each of the lakes, so you can tailor your walk according to how you feel, or the weather. At about the same time a new car park, and 80 large timber platforms for anglers were constructed. All the platforms are fitted with bankstick and umbrella holders.
