Walka water works is steeped in history & is one of the largest & most intact industrial complexes built in the 19th century. The pumphouse which was buit in 1887 features a striking chimney & ornate brickwork.The large lake area is home to over 300 species of birdlife & is surrounded  by various walking trails. we took full advantage of the lovely picnic areas, the playground & even took the lake walk, although we ran out of time to do the tour on the mini train.I should also say  a big thank you to Mother nature for giving us an incredible sunny autumn day!!

Happy Mothers Day to all!!!!!
