  • An amazing tranquil area with a great story of brush history. Certainly worth the walk around. Not to difficult but for the more fitter there are walks to the top of the surrounding hills.

  • Lovely place. Get there early on a good weather day.
  • Worth a visit anytime but spectacular when the reservoir is full and overflowing - huge waterfall.

  • Fabulous place steeped I amazing British history a must visit place
