Take the Crockerton turn off the A350 and turn into Clay Street by the Bath Arms. Look for a carpark on your left opposite the entrance to the lake. A paved track leads round the lake itself and a number of trails lead into the woods, to which there is open access. The lake itself is much used by fishermen and sailors. Great Crested Grebe breed here and there are populations of Mallard, Coot and Moorhen . Grey Heron, Little Egret, Cormorant and Kingfisher may be seen. Goosander sometimes visit in winter. In the woods, you may see Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, Stock Dove, Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Goldcrest, Marsh Tit, Crossbills and Siskin. Firecrest is also a possibility.
