Friends of Our Valley planted over 3000 spring and autumn flowering bulbs in 2018 between the entrance gates of the Roman Lakes and the weir beneath the viaduct. Look out for snowdrops, miniature daffodils and autumn crocus.
The Fish Pass project was a collaborative project to aid the free passage of migratory fish along the River Goyt. The historic weir blocked their passage but is now circumnavigated by the opening of the adjacent sluice gates. The project was completed and funded by the Mersey Rivers Trust, Friends of Our Valley, the Environment Agency, the Roman Lakes Leisure Park and local angling groups. The fencing was funded by the Environment Agency and Friends of Our Valley.
The defibrillator is located just outside the entrance gates to the Roman Lakes Leisure Park, Lakes Road, SK6 7HB.
