We visited the RSPB Reserve close by Middleton Lakes, parking behind the Hall and following the waymarked footpaths through the woodland. The route is well defined and good underfoot, suitable for mobility scooters or wheelchairs as well. There are various side routes off the main path which look good for exploring or resting-up if you need a break. Twenty mins... More

found this place by accident!...not very well signposted and the approach is off the beaten track & a bit dusty but well worth it. Once you get onto the RSPB site it is immaculate with ample parking. There were no staff on site when we arrived and could not find where to pay, after checking the notice board it said... More

Visited 28/10/16 - half term is not good for birds! However I got some decent pictures around the feeders by the Heronry - Tits, Finches and Woodpeckers. Weather overcast. Easy walking distance to Middleton Hall for cafes and toilets.

Easy to find and adequate parking. Footpaths in mainly good order. Dogs allowed entry to most areas on a lead. Good variety of wildfowl and insect life. Cafe adjacent to the site.

Today there was an RSPB volunteer in the car park who was very friendly, we were a group of 20 who walked through the woods, along the canal and around the reserve. Parts of the reserve including the woods allow dogs on the lead and you can incorporate a walk along the canal

Established just over 10 years ago, this reserve seems to improve each time we go, with new boardwalks, paths and a superb, large hide with height adjustable swivel seats. You approach the wetland area via an area of reedbeds and a heronry in the distance and then about 1/4 mile through woodland alongside a brook. The wetland area has recently... More

A well maintained RSPB reserve, good walks around the area and usually RSPB people onsite, lots of birds and other wildlife to see. I also like that there are shops and a nice cafe very near, only negative is the approach road which is dreadful

Although we're not birdwatchers we decided to visit the RSPB reserve at Middleton Lakes because we were also visiting Middleton Hall (literally 300 yards away). The RSPB have taken great care to provide good footpaths around the lakes, so it was easy walking even though there had been a lot of heavy rain recently, and it was an unexpected treat... More
