3 Lake/ River/ Ponds to explore in Rutland
Rutland is a landlocked county in the East Midlands of England, bounded to the west and north by Leicestershire, to the northeast by Lincolnshire and the southeast by Northamptonshire. It is England’s smallest and arguably prettiest county and is the perfect place to spend time enjoying the great outdoors.
Eyebrook Reservoir is a jewel hidden in one of the prettiest parts of England. Surrounded by rolling arable fields, pasture land, spruce, pine and willow trees. This large reservoir straddles the border between Leicestershire and Rutland. Access is limited but good views of the northern end are available from the road. It was built between 1937 and 1940 by damming the Eye Brook and the site now covers around 200 hectares.
