Exmoor Memories: Wimbleball Lake


Jane Carey shared this image of Wimbleball Lake which she took two days ago.  In response, a number of our Facebook followers posted their memories of Wimbleball Lake:

“We love this place, but sadly Alfie has damaged his tail because he wags it too much when he’s swimming – which he did yesterday! He’s sprained his tail – according to the vet. Never knew this was possible, but now he’s on anti-inflammatories! Poor Alf – tail at half mast, but still wagging gently.”  (Maureen Young )

 “I have fond memories of walking here with my parents. Maureen – didn’t know a dog could wag too much, hope Alfie is better soon.” (Julie Sturmer )

I have walked around this lake a few year ago before I had the chest problem.” (Derek Johnson)

“I’ve been swimming in there! I was about 9 or 10 at the time and was on a school trip.” (Steve Worzel Harriss)

 “I remember going fishing there back in 1982.” (Brian Miller)

    HI Jane and all,
    Lovely picture of Wimbleball Lake, and good to see so many great memories made here.
    Just a reminder though – neither dogs or people are permitted to swim in the lake (dogs because it is a reservoir, and people for safety reasons). Dogs must also be kept on leads (except in the dog exercise area (above the sailing club)).
    Please see: http://www.southwestlakes.co.uk/dog-walking/ for more details.
    Many thanks,
    Alex Forster,
    Countryside and Angling Manager (Exmoor)
