    Lodge Lake is one of the city's ‘on-line’ balancing lakes. It was created in 1981 by building a dam across the Loughton Brook. This holds back water as flow rates in the brook increase, helping to prevent flooding in downstream areas. The lake is perfect for a short outing - a gentle walk around the lake edge takes about 30 minutes - with plenty of interest on and off the water year-round.

    Refreshments
    None on site; the nearest shops are located in Great Holm about five minutes’ walk to the west. A Chinese restaurant, the Kam Tong Garden, overlooks the lake.
