ADDERBURY LAKES OPEN DAY: Saturday 16th September 2017

Adderbury Lakes, the local nature reserve that belongs to all of us in the village, will be holding an Open Day on Saturday, 16th September 2017.

Lasting from 10.00 till 4.00, with free entry, the Open Day will bring activities for all the family. Some will be available continuously all day: there will be crafts and competitions for children of all ages, pond dipping, demonstrations of spinning and weaving, with the chance to try both for yourself, a demonstration of bee-keeping and a photography competition, where you can either pick up the details on the day or request them from

Other activities will take place at particular times: there will be trips on the Upper Lake by rowing boat between 10 and 12, 2 and 4; and there will history walks and talks at 10.30 and 3.00 (on Adderbury House and the Icehouse), at 11.30 (on Mr Chamberlin’s New Garden) and at 1.30 (a rare chance to walk down to the Sor Brook and the view the unusual willow carr landscape).

There will be information points at both the Lake Walk and Long Wall entrances to help you plan your visit. Activities have been grouped around the upper lake, so that you will still be able to experience the peace and quiet of the lower lake.

Please plan to visit us on foot, as we have no parking, apart from two disabled parking places at the Lake Walk entrance.
