About the location

RUDYARD LAKE

Leek 4.5 miles.

Rudyard Lake lies in a thickly wooded hillside area of the Staffordshire Moorlands. The 2.5 mile-long lake, part of which is a conservation area, offers many activities including sailing, boating and fishing, as well as many lovely walks and cycle routes and is a haven for wildlife, flora and fauna. There is a small shop and cafe on the lake, as well as a steam railway, a sailing club which offers courses for all abilities, and a hotel with a friendly bar and restaurant. Just 3 miles away is the hillside market town of Leek, known as 'The Queen of the Moorlands'. Leek boasts numerous antique shops, real ale pubs, restaurants and a local park and leisure centre. The town’s cobbled market place has many examples of fine Victorian architecture influenced by William Morris, a reminder of when the town was a silk manufacturing centre. The Three Shire Head is close by, the meeting point of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, as is Tatton Park, a beautiful historic estate with manor house, landscaped gardens, parkland, shops and a restaurant. Styal County Park and Gawswirth Hall are also well worth a visit, and Alton Towers and the beautiful Peak District National Park are just a short drive away.
