Stanborough Lakes. The lakes were opened recently in 1970. They are the result of gravel extraction for the A1 (M). The Boating Lake is the northern lake and is shallow with several small islands. It is fed by water from the Lea at its north end and from a spring. Excess water flows over a weir back into the river at the south end.
Splashland Open Air Pool was a heated pool with waterslides and learner pool. Demolished
