The Blue Lake

 

We only recently heard about the blue lake – only 20 minutes drive away and featured on BBC’s secret Britain programme.  This is a lake made from old quarry workings and due to the minerals in it is blue all year around.  It really is a secret place to get to as it involves a steep climb and the need to enter for a 10m long tunnel in the rock!  However, the secret is out and many people now visit to have a look and enjoy the peace and views, or to enjoy the wild swimming in this natural outdoor swimming pool!  Definitely well worth a visit!
