  • I only gave it 3 stars because the visitors centre seems to have been closed for ages. Nice walks around the lakes, entrance may be bit steep a climb for some folks.
  • The front gates were open but the centre was locked, it always seems to be closed. So walked onto the decking which was open from the side entrance. The view onto the Gorge is highy obscured, can't see much, a real shame as it would otherwise be a great platform for viewing the Gorge. I have attached 2 photographs. Really needs to be drastically trimmed. I then used the path to the right of the wildlife trust building and walked down into the Gorge. There were lovely ducks and newly hatched chicks and other wildlife, great to see and photograph. I have attached a photo of a lone chick amongst the daisies. Very peaceful setting. Please do get the trees and bushes trimmed.
