Wimbleball Lake

Wimbleball Lake

Habitat: Upland reservoir with adjacent farmland, pine heath, and oak and birch woodland

Bessom Bridge: SS975319 Main car park: SS967305, TA22 9NU

  • Directions

    From Ralegh’s Cross take the B3190 west, then turn right (brown signed) to the northern end of the lake. Minor car park is down a left turn just before Bessom Bridge and main car park down a left turn c.500 yds west of the bridge. Parking no longer allowed at sailing club.

    The Upton arm at the south end can be reached along a public footpath from Upton, though parking is difficult (SS991288), or from Haddon Hill (see separate site guide).

  • Accessibility

    Mostly public access, though some of the better paths involve steep gradients, so not very wheelchair friendly. You can do a full circuit if you’re feeling energetic, though it is 9 miles long, and stout/ waterproof footwear is recommended. Café (restricted opening hours) and toilets at main car park.
