  • Lovely spot at the end of the Peak Forest canal. Well worth a visit for the history.
  • I was happy to read that Ray "Clean shoe" Lovett won't be bringing any boats to Bugsworth Basin. Apparently the Canada geese have spoiled his pleasure . What a shame. I for one won't miss old Clean shoe or the filthy cloudy water he kicks up.Making it Impossible for pike to see any lure. Suck it up Ray. Like we have to do.
  • Good history. Have a read.
  • Lovevly views nice place for a walk
  • Visit by boat is no longer a pleasure. The mess left by the huge number of Canada Geese is a disgrace. It has ruined a lovely attraction.
