Wetland nature reserve
The use of Cavendish Dock as a reservoir for the adjacent Roosecote gas-fired power station has raised the water temperature within the Dock and created an environment of unique ecological interest. The dock is currently used for feeding throughout the year by wildfowl and mute swans.
It is planned to create a £2 million warm water nature reserve around the dock and its margins to provide a national nature reserve to protect and preserve the natural habitat.
Cumbria County Council will be making a large investment in landscaping the area.
