    Come along and sketch with local artist Nicky Browne at the leg O'Mutton Reservoir. 

    Built as a reservoir in 1838, Leg O'Mutton Reservoir is now a nature reserve. It is interesting for wildlife, including birds and even terrapins. Colin at SWLEN (South West London Environmental Network) said that birds enroute for the Wetlands Centre often stop here by mistake. It is particularly interesting for ancient poplar trees planted in 1850.

    Free of charge.

    FACILITIES: There are no toilets or any facilities.

    TRAVEL: Barnes Station and walk along the river or 419 bus
