The Contact


Off Fulbridge Road,


Cuckoo's Hollow in Werrington was originally an area of pastureland surrounded by dykes on all sides with Werrington Brook running through the centre. In the late 1970's the site was excavated to create the lake and shape the site; trees and shrubs were planted and bridges built. The island in the middle of the lake has become a breeding ground for ducks, swans and other waterfowl. Cuckoo's Hollow is not only a haven for birds but it is also home to many bats which can be see skimming the water at dusk.
