"Carsington Water" Ashbourne Things to Do Tip by stevezero
Ashbourne Things to Do: 8 reviews and 12 photos
Carsington Water came into being in 1992 as a reservoir to store water form the river Derwent when the water level is high, and return it to the river when it is low. The water is then treated further downstream.
The stretch of water is now though much more about leisure. There is a sailing club, many walks and cycle tracks around the water. It is possible to hire cycles here.
There is also a Visitor Centre supplying information about he area, the history and the nature. Also there is a shop and a nice cafe with good views over the water.
