This is a country park covering just over 60 hectares of land. Once the site of a large reservoir supplying drinking water to Stoke on Trent. That reservoir has been reduced to 3 large scenic pools surrounded by way-marked walks through picturesque woodland and flower rich meadows which link to the adjacent Canal towpaths.

This is a Country Park in a rural setting and whilst every effort has been made to give good access in high use areas such as the Visitor Centre there are inevitably areas of the wider park that due to topography and ground conditions are unsuitable for wheelchair access or for people with impaired mobility.
