Bolam Lake Country Park


Bolam Lake Country Park is located near Bolam, Northumberland and is about 9 miles west of Morpeth and is signposted off the A696 from Belsay. The lake was constructed c.1817 for Lord Decies of Bolam. John Dobson was commissioned to lay out the grounds in 1816, including the 25-acre artificial lake and woodland. Northumberland County Council purchased the lake and some of the surounding woodland in 1972 for use as a Country Park.
