SJ9599 : Stamford Park Boating Lake

Stamford Park Boating Lake
Stamford Park Boating Lake
The boating lake to the north of Darnton Road. The lake, formerly the mill reservoir known as Chadwick Dams, was incorporated into the park in 1891. The reservoir was divided in two by an embankment, with the southern section becoming the present boating lake.

The park is currently (2011) undergoing refurbishment and the lake is only open at weekends, hence the lack of activity on the lake. SJ9599 : The Stamford Belle is moored off the island.
