Rural Relaxation: At Weston Turville Reservoir

Sunday was a lovely sunny November day and I decided to take a walk round Weston Turville Reservoir.  The reservoir was built about 200 years ago to ensure a supply of water to local mills when the local stream was diverted to feed what is now the Grand Union Canal. I went there because it is an attractive Nature Reserve, managed by  BBOWT, although it is also used by Aylesbury Sailing ClubThe walk was most enjoyable - although no birds (apart from gulls in the distance) were visible from the new hide - so I watched the sailing instead! The only problem was the mud - particularly where the path is narrow behind the boating club clubhouse, so if you want to walk round be sure to have good shoes.

For other photographs I have taken of the area, including part of the Wendover Canal, see Geograph.

As today is the anniversary of my daughter Lucy's death I am taking a rest from this web site.  See you all tomorrow for some more genealogy related posts.
