I hope I’m not mistaken but I don’t think I’ve quite written about whether or not you can walk around Blagdon Lake… Certainly, I’ve covered Chew Valley Lake and, if I have written about Blagdon’s own reservoir, there’s a chance the post was anything but minimal in length.
So, I’m writing again, in an attempt to create something more succinct (or, at least as much as I can do!).
