Tortworth Lake Restoration

The valley was dammed to the north of Tortworth Court to produce the lake and the slopes around the lake were planted with trees over 150 years ago.  Used during World War II in the winter of 1943/44 as a test site for amphibious vehicles to be used in the 'D' day invasions, it is wonderful to see restoration of this most important heritage asset.  Removal of silt and the re-profiling of the watercourses and lake island will ensure that the lake remains in good order for years to come.
