The car parks to this reservoir (which provides water for the Oxford Canal) are on the road between Upper Boddington and Byfield. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/places-to-visit-pdf/Boddington.pdf

There are two Wildlife Trust managed sites around the reservoir – Byfield Pool which was the original canal reservoir, built in the 1790s, www.wildlifebcn.org/reserves/byfield-pool and Boddington Meadow, www.wildlifebcn.org/reserves/boddington-meadow named as Northamptonshire’s Coronation Meadow, an outstanding example of our remaining meadows, rich in a wealth of flowers and able to be held up as the flagship meadow for the county.  It is used as a donor for seeds to create a new meadow in Kingsthorpe, nr Northampton. http://coronationmeadows.org.uk
