Exploring Arlington Reservoir

Julia, Claire Leach and I are off to Arlington Reservoir to walk the perimeter and enjoy the water spectacle. Arlington Reservoir is a 245.6 acre biological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Arlington, East Sussex. The site was notified in 1985 under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. It is also a Local Nature Reserve. A large jetty juts into the water and a few hundred yards away there is a water treatment building. The reservoir was created by damming the River Cuckmere, which previously meandered to the middle of the present-day reservoir. The Cuckmere is now channelled in a straight line just to the east.
