|At the turn of the century, mining subsidence and flooding
created what has now become the ' Flash'. The 70 hectare lake is the centrepiece of this rare and beautiful countryside park.
Now an extensive nature reserve with several bird hides, children's play area, picnic and recreation areas, a network of tracks and footpaths. Nationally renown for it's birdlife, Pennington Flash is a classic example of natural regeneration.
