Swakeleys Lake 8101

London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

The house remains in private ownership and remnants of the earlier landscape remain in its grounds, while the land to the west of the lake and east of the River Pinn is publicly accessible. There are fine trees and a grassy path on the east side of the lake, which provides views of the house, dovecotes and entrance gates. The lake has wooded edges and is well-populated by wild fowl.

History

The public park includes Swakeleys Lake, originally a formal canal within the grounds of the 17th-century Swakeleys House, now serpentine.
