Stanwick Lakes – a wonderful resource for Irthlingborough and surrounds

I spent the day walking around Stanwick Lakes. The ex quarry has been turned into a series of lakes and paths for wildlife and people. I spent a few enjoyable hours wandering around in the sunshine, bird watching from various huts and hides and swinging on the modern tyre swings. There is an adventure trail, adventure playground and an assult course as well as a brand new visitor center that is being constructed as I type. At the weekends and over the school holidays bikes can be hired. It’s definitely a place to go if you are in the Nene Valley area.
