Located off the A4500, 6 miles east of Northampton.

A very scenic Country Park, developed from a former water supply reservoir and its surrounding pastureland, close to the village of Earls Barton village.

The original Edwardian pump house buildings and valve tower still survive along with a collection of exotic trees in a small arboretum below the dam. The reservoir is a coarse fishery of national renown, particularly for its Tench which grow to over 10lb. These features allied to new facilities and recent access improvements provide a rewarding day out.
