Earlswood Lakes Circular Walk in Worcestershire / West Midlands

Earlswood Lakes are man-made reservoirs in Worcestershire which were made to supply water to the Stratford-Upon-Avon Canal. The North of the lakes is bordering on West Midlands.

This is a nice gentle walk across flat terrain. Most of the paths are well maintained, but some places may get a little muddy at times.

I have walked around the reservoirs a few times. Recently the lakes have been partially trained for maintenance work, the photos below include when the reservoir is at it’s normal level as well as when under maintenance.

Distance: 2.5 miles
