The reservoir is two and a quarter miles in circumference and was built in the 1930s. In January it is filled with coots and moorhens while geese and swans also winter here. There is public access all the year round making it a popular walk, cycle way, and running track with views across to the Isle of Wedmore and the Mendips.
