Upper Lake
Upper Lake
Looking north-west along the length of the lake. Upper Lake is of Medieval origin, but was greatly extended in the 1740s by the eccentric 5th Lord Byron. The mock fort on the left was built about 1750 as an eye catcher and as a mooring for a ship which Lord Byron kept for entertaining his friends with mock naval battles on the lake.
