Hanningfield Reservoir, set within a picturesque part of Essex, is open for visitors to enjoy a great day out in a beautiful landscape.
From fishing, walking or watching the amazing wildlife to having a relaxing picnic or enjoying a meal at our Café on the Water, there is something for all the family.
Renowned for its nationally important populations of wildfowl, the reservoir is a wonderful haven for nature and wildlife. With four bird watching hides you are certain to catch a glimpse of a gadwall, tufted duck or woodpecker.
There is also easy access by road to Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserve or you can enjoy stunning shoreline and woodland walks that link up to the trusts visitor centre.
