Starting at the Visitor Centre follow the pavement and head past the front of the Watersport Centre. You will see a sign indicating walking trails. Proceed through the gate and immediately head left following the bottom of the field until you reach another gate leading you into the woodland.
Follow the waymarked woodland path until you reach a gate leading into the meadows. Continue walking through the meadows. It is important to stay off the shore as this is a common nesting ground for Ringed Plovers and a resting place for a number of birds. The shoreline is an Angler only area to minimise footfall and ensure everybody’s safety.
Keeping to the right-hand side mowed path walk past the inlet pumping station and into the north end car park. This is a great place to stop and “take a rest” and make use of the available toilet facilities.
When you’re ready, head back to the Visitor Centre by following the same route back.
