An attractive lake, with the rivers Colne and Frays running alongside. Ideal for walking, fishing, picnicking.

The name Little Britain first appeared in print on a map in 1819. It is possible that the name derives from the vaguely Britannic shape of the ‘island’ formed by the River Colne, Frays River and the road to the south. Little Britain Lake was created following gravel extraction in the early 1930s.
