Leg O Mutton, SW13 9QN

Join Veronica Schroter, local resident and Leg o'Mutton committee member on a springtime stroll around this Local Nature Reserve.

Built in 1838, the Leg o' Mutton Reservoir supplied water until its decommission in 1960. Today, measuring just 800 x 100m (8.2ha), this linear site offers shelter and haven to a wealth of birds and other wildlife.

Spring is a lovely time to explore the reservoir, walking under the trees and listening for bird song.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy footwear.
