Keswick visitor centre
A free interactive visitor centre about Cumbria’s water environment
The reservoirs and rivers in the Lake District are often the focal point of the most picturesque views and stunning landscapes – acknowledged and appreciated throughout the world.
But did you know Cumbria’s reservoirs play a huge part in supplying drinking water to millions of people throughout the North West? And the rivers help support an array of amazing wildlife.
If you’re in Keswick why not pop along to our free interactive visitor centre? You’ll find us at:
32 Lake Road, Keswick, CA12 5DQ
There are information displays about the history of Thirlmere reservoir, videos, a children’s activity area and our plans to construct over 100km of new pipes to help keep taps flowing in West Cumbria.
There’s also information about the work of West Cumbria Rivers Trust and in true Cumbrian style – dogs are welcome too!
Feel free to pop in and take a look around. The centre is unmanned, but there will be a member of the West Cumbria Water Supplies project team available on Thursdays from 17 January 2019 between 10am and 3pm to answer any queries you may have about our work.
