Edgbaston Reservoir

This eight and a half mile route starts and finishes at the scenic Edgbaston Reservoir, an important 70 acre nature conservation site. It is mainly open water and supports a variety of birdlife and provides a sanctuary for newts and bats. A belt of woodland and grassland encircles the reservoir providing an oasis of natural beauty in an urban setting. This a traffic-free route for the majority of the way with a few suburban roads taking in the beautiful Cannon Hill Park - an ideal spot for an ice cream.
