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!
