Carsington Water Plant Fair
11th August at 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Carsington Water Plant Fair boasts a Country Park with plenty of space for family games and picnics, and also the recently refurbished visitor centre and a brand new children’s play area, Carsington is a great place for a family day out. There is also a sailing club and trout fishery for those looking for an activity to get involved with. Dogs and barbeques are welcome in the Country Park.
Located between Wirksworth and Kniveton, Carsington Water takes water through the tunnels and aqueduct straight from the River Derwent. We have everything you need for a great day out, with plenty of activities and things to do.
There are 8 miles of paved walks from short strolls to long serious walks.
The reservoir was always conceived as a natural looking haven for wildlife and exciting space for water-based activities co-existing in harmony.
The restaurant serves a wide range of lunches and refreshments and has windows and a terrace that give panoramic views of the water and park.
Pay and Display parking.
Dogs are welcome.
