From serene reflections to stormy waves, the reservoir offers ever-changing photo-opportunities. . .

Nature triumphs over the dry clay -  at last Clippesby has an area where wild plants and flowers flourish freely. . .     Where have they all come from?

. . . coltsfoot, ragwort, scarlet pimpernel, daisies, ground ivy, lesser & greater willowherb. . .

                                                   the list will grow as the months go by. . .

Reservoir ~ sky, light, water, wind . . .

(Update: - 2015 - Sadly the concession for the first part of this walk  has been withdrawn, so it is is no longer accessible to the public.)

So far this year (January 2016) we have had very little of "the white stuff" so here is a look back at a few days in the winters of 2008 and 2009.  The views are taken in and around Clippesby Hall, before the construction of the reservoir.  Accompanied by some delicate and peaceful harp music by Handel.
