photograph of Waterloo Lake, the Big LakeCompleted in 1815 and designed to use existing field boundaries and woodlands to create its sinuous shape, Waterloo Lake by its sheer size alone (12ha), formed the dominant feature of Nicholsons picturesque landscape.

When Nicholson completed Waterloo Lake he covered the site of some earlier mining works which had scarred the landscape. The old quarry/mine was dammed up by unemployed soldiers from Napoleonic Wars. This, the largest of the parks water features, commands breathtaking views no matter where you are along its perimeter.

In 1893 it was reported that a fully rigged ship was destroyed by torpedo in a realistic battle on Waterloo Lake. Things on the whole are a little more peaceful today, although the lake has been used for many watersports exhibitions and competitions in recent years.
