Love Carr Mill Dam. 8.20am sunrisr was so beautiful - it was 0°C but worth it. You can walk around it. I parked by the pub for few minutes. Been at the pub once , loved the food there 😁. Definitely worth going .

Had a good day walking along the nature reserve trails up to the dam. Then we followed that by a nice meal at the restaurant and a slow walk back.

its many, many years since i last stopped at Carr Mill and I was pleasantly surprised at how well the lake looked! Parking was easy and although I did not eat - the pub/restaurant looked inviting

There is a Toby Carvery adjacent to the dam, but I don't believe there are any public toilets specifically for the walking trails.
