Lakes, Cider & Bees!

No - we have not moved house! BUT - there are lakes and lakes - we have Swan Lake, The Lake District, and here in Oxfordshire, we have the Lake at Blenheim Palace - see above - which was created by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown between 1768 - 1771 and dug out by hand (probably not his own!),  then filled by building a dam across the flow of the River Glyme.
