Killingworth Lake


In 1964, during the reclamation of the derelict site of Killingworth Colliery, a large lake was created to the south of Killingworth as part of the new town developments. Southgate road crosses the lake; like a drawbridge which led to the former Killingworth Towers designed to a 'medieval castle-town' concept! Today the lake is used for boating and angling and attracts a wide range of water fowl, including tufted ducks.
