Charnwood Water (Loughborough)

Charnwood Water is a man-made reservoir and beauty spot in Loughborough.

It can be found in Tuckers Road, off Beeches Road, which is a turning off Leicester Road to the South of Loughborough town centre.

The lake was constructed out of the old Tuckers brickworks, which supplied bricks for St. Pancras Station in London. It is surrounded by trees, with footpaths all around. It is much loved by wildfowl.

It is the site of the deserted mediaeval village of Shelthorpe, whose name was used for a 20th century housing estate, situated on the other site of Leicester Road.

Charnwood Water is the starting point for a number of Guided Walks devised and led by Colin Crosby. Those taking part should assemble in the car park.
