Ever wondered what lies in the gap between Finsbury Park and Clissold Park? We hadn't either, but it turns out it's a pair of nearly-200-year-old reservoirs, somehow obscured by the terraces of Manor House. East Reservoir, which was originally built in 1833 and has become a haven for wildlife, is opening to the public for the first time in its history thanks to £1.5 million in funds form the Heritage Lottery Fund. Specially designed walkways will allow visitors to explore the area and get up close to its residents, which include kingfishers, song thrushes, bitterns, bats and plenty more. A visitor centre and café are available for those who want to make a day of their visit.
