      Mary's Lake is the second lake on the right hand side of Mill Lane going towards Wollaston Mill. As you exit Summer Leys Nature reserve [the exit is near the feeding station] into Mill Lane walk across the road and onto the site of Mary's Lake. The lake was named after a local lady Mary Harper who lived in Mill Lane. There is a public footpath around the lake and even more lakes behind Mary's.

    Love both places, great resources for nature photos, BUT access to Mary's Lake is limited by the locked gate and as a wheelchair user it makes it almost impossible to go there in the chair. Also some of the "kiss gates" around SL need attention, mostly as they are not deep enough - my chair can only just manage, but no-one in a power scooter would be able to use the site. Finally, there is the continuing problem of dog mess. Sorry, but two bins next to the car park and a couple of signs are not enough.
