Strinesdale is an area of water and woodland covering approximately 40 acres. In 1991, the reservoirs were drained and replaced by two smaller lakes with the old reservoirs being planted with trees and grassland. The original reservoirs were built in 1828 and the date stone can be seen at Upper Strinesdale.
