Killingworth Lake
Killingworth Lake
Killingworth Lake and the surrounding woodland was created in the 1960s during the reclamation of derelict colliery land. The lake is designated as a Site of Local Conservation Interest (SLCI) and supports a wide variety of wildlife. The floating reed-bed was installed in 2005 to improve habitat diversity. The lake supports a large population of mute swans; a pair is currently nesting on the reed-bed, along with a Coot NZ2770 : Mute Swans and Coot family, Killingworth Lake and a Great Crested Grebe.
