A very well kept lovely circular walk around the fresh water pond. A great place to walk the dog on lead. Very picturesque landscape with the odd fisherman here and there. A small island for the ducks and geese. At the back of the pond...More

lovely place, nice and relaxing, but sometimes there is some real scumbags fishing there, drinking beer and smelling of wee wee! beware the swans when they have signets as well, as they will break your arm

Not well signed we found the reservoir by accident when we went over to Rochford station. Pleasant walk on a sunny day quite a few seats.
