Blithfield Reservoir is a beautiful 790-acre lake set in the rolling hills of Blithe Valley. The reservoir was created by building a dam across the nearby River Blithe, channelling water into the valley alongside it. The reservoir took 500 men more than six years to complete and was officially opened by the Queen Mother in October 1953. Today it provides up to 100 million litres of water each day to more than half a million houses and businesses in parts of the Black Country, East and South Staffordshire and South Derbyshire. Visitors to the reservoir can enjoy beautiful countryside walks, bird watching or take part in sailing and angling activities. No camping or overnight parking.
