THE LAKE

THE LAKE

Hidden away in a quiet town north of Uttoxeter is an unexpected gem for wildlife lovers, birders and photographers. Two picturesque lakes boast numerous native and exotic waterfowl, giving you a unique opportunity to capture an extensive portfolio in a short period of time. It’s rare for such an urban location to boast such a sheer number and variety of wildlife and many wild birds call these lakes home due to the fantastic habitat and care that goes into maintaining the area.
