I've been working up in Newcastle and on the way back home I decided to stop and take a break

Built in the 1800's by Napoleonic Soldiers, this man-made lake dominates Roundhay Park, Leeds.Originally this area was heavily mined for Coal, Iron & Clay dating back to the 12th Century, now Waterloo lake (12-15ha) occupies this age old land.

The lake is fed by the Wyke Beck from the North, with a more modern overflow system being constructed in recent times, replacing the old waterfall and drainage system.
I've not seen this one posted for a couple of years but I've always fancied it so popped in :)
