Marvelous walk around Radley Lake!! Plenty to see from ducks, Swans, Cormorants and I was very lucky to see a Kingfisher ( In the right place at the right time!! ) had a Robin following me, so I helped by turning a few longs over!!

It's a great Sunday afternoon walk (perhaps to walk off a roast?!). My parents go here regularly just for that! It is pretty - it's just not my sort of thing. It was good though to visit something I hadn't been to before - especially...More

This area is amazing to walk the dogs. Not over crowed and so many different routes to take. Extremely peaceful and worth a few hours out walking the dogs

A beautiful ramble any time of the year. The walk changes with each season and never fails to make you stop and wonder at the views. A well signed circular route round a lake which attracts different birds during the year.

It's a very nice and gentle walk around a lake with bird watch house and beautiful light. Specially at sunset and sunrise, the light is great for all photography lover and bird watch. The walk is flat and easy access for all age groups.

Very nice area with decent signposting for the 'Circular route' which took about 30 minutes around the lake. Well marked footpaths keep you on track and the birdhouse viewing gallery is a nice touch. Track (expectedly) was a little muddy in places. Only gripe is...More
