Hey, townie as we say this is a friendly forum. I have never looked up definition of lake. However somewhere in the definition there would be something like. Still, expanse and water. That fits lake and reservoir, so it counts.

The River Thames is also registered as the River Isis. It starts in the Cotswolds.
The Cotswolds come over the border into Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

Hello Townie
I have seen most of the dams almost dry and just 1 full one to supply Birmingham. Then it rained. Have you seen the dams.
Great place to visit, one of my favourite spots.

Brilliant, could have been in the 70's, long hair, Tash, tattoos Levi 501's and of course no fat belly. Could not have been me though, as I could never manage to put up one of those deck chairs.... ;D ;D

That was me in the hot summer of 76 during my time as a shark whisperer  ;D ;D ;D. Locals blamed pollution for the lack of fish in the Cole but it was the shark.

This was the smallest Shark, rather small for river Cole fish.
