In Victorian times Hollingworth Lake was known as the “The Weighvers’ Seaport”.
Now once again visitors can enjoy many outdoor attractions and an excellent Visitor Centre.
Spanning 118 acres with the dramatic backdrop of Blackstone Edge, the lake is one of the most popular days out in the area.
With boating, a nature reserve, trails, events, guided walks, Visitor Centre, community arts, environmental exhibitions, play and picnic areas it is the perfect day out for all the family.
The wider country park has plenty of walking routes, from easy strolls around the lake shore to sturdier trecks in the surrounding hills.
The Country Park Visitor Centre, off Rakewood Road, has leaflets and guide books for these walks.
Visitor Centre: Open : Mon; Tues; Fri; Sat; Sun – 1000-1500 (closed Wed & Thurs).
