Langford Lakes

Langford Lakes

If you love birds and like walking by tranquil lakes then Langford Lakes is the perfect spot for you to visit.

Nestled in the Wylye Valley half way between Salisbury and Warminster, Langford Lakes is an ideal place to do some bird watching and learn about wildlife. Since we bought the land in 2001 we have worked hard to develop the former Langford Fisheries turn into a wildlife haven for birds and birdwatchers alike.

The nature reserve now covers an expanse of 31 hectares, with four lakes and an 800m stretch of the Wylye River, which is designated as a Special Area of Conservation. It now includes our new Great Meadow wetland, which was officially opened in September 2012.

We run many family and educational activities from our two centres, which are also available to hire. The reserve has a relaxing atmosphere and you can enjoy watching its resident wildfowl from five bird-watching hides overlooking the lakes, providing good close up views.

You may even see some rarities, especially during the spring and autumn migrations. Osprey anyone?
