Floating reedbed, Killingworth Lake

  • Description

    "Around 1964, during the reclamation of the derelict pit sites, an attractive 6 hectare lake was created to the south of the centre of Killingworth new town. This floating reedbed was installed in 2005 to provide a spawning area for fish and nesting habitat for waterfowl. Mute swans and black-headed gulls can be seen." Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2012.
