This is the path you take to walk clockwise round the reserve.
On a day like this almost everything seems to be in black and white - apart from the visitors!
Wintery Scenes round College Lake

The nature reserve looks very different after snow, a hard frost and even during a fog.

College Lake Nature Reserve, near Tring :: SP9314

College Lake is a large nature reserve with a very wide variety of habitats created from a large chalk pit. There is a large area of marsh with islands, and a deep water lake, while the cliffs surrounding the pit are in various stages of being "recovered" by nature. There is open meadow land and an area kept as an old fashioned cornfield full of flowers. There is woodland all round the area (originally planted to hide the quarry) and a large new woodland of native trees and shrubs. This all means that whatever time of the year you visit you can expect to see a wide variety of wildlife.

There are good facilities for the visitor (and for school parties), including many hides, and displays of old agricultural equipment. It is run by the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust. LinkExternal link
