I was thinking during my tour round the Lake, that this was where the Commonwealth Games Rowing Events took place in 1958. I only said that as I used to work with one of the Gold Medallists

Loved stopping here for an hour or so just taking in the evening views. Free parking and clear water in the lake. Breath taking scenery.

Plenty to do nearby. We went on the lake railway which passes the Slate Museum and Quarry Hospital. We also went kayaking on the lake.
