FREEZING MORNING LAKESIDE NATURE WALK AROUND BATCHWORTH LAKE

This lakeside is a combination of great delights for dog walkers to a family hike, a popular cycling route to water skiing. Batchworth lake in Rickmansworth Aquadrome is just one of the natural  sites. The River Colne gently meanders alongside Batchworth lake.
