Marsworth Reservoir, Tring
Marsworth Reservoir, Tring
This view of reed beds in Marsworth Reservoir (looking East), is from the end of the causeway that separates Marsworth and Startops Reservoirs.

Marsworth is one of four reservoirs in the vicinity that were built in the early 19th Century to maintain water levels in the Grand Union Canal as it crosses its summit in the Chiltern Hills; the others are Startops - which adjoins - Tringford and Wilstone, the latter being by far the largest. The four Tring Reservoirs are a favourite haunt of bird-watchers and fishermen, and are now designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest on account of their wealth of wildlife.
