The site was at one time an area for clay working but this was abandoned a long time ago and nature has been allowed to reclaim it. There are a number of beautiful lakes to view, populated by ducks and other birds.

Swanwick Lakes has a study centre near the entrance and we had a look in here as well. The staff were very welcoming and keen to be of help to us. One particular point of interest was a feeding area for birds set near to a large window in the centre. Sat inside, even on a brisk winter day, it was therefore possible to sit, rather relaxed, watching lots of blue tits and coal tits enjoying a snack. A delightful treat!
