Garbolino Lindholme Lakes lies on the border of South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire in the uniquely insular area of the Isle of Axholme. The market town of Epworth home of John and Charles Wesley, founders of Methodism is four miles to the east.
The area is on the eastern boundary of Hatfield Chase, once the great hunting estate of the Stuart kings. Prior to C17 much of the chase was subject to flooding from the rivers Don and Idle and was a morass of peat and bog resulting from the decomposition of aquatic plants and moss following the felling of great forest trees.
Cornelius Vermuyden, a Dutchman, was bought over by Charles 1 to effect drainage of the land. Feuds developed between his workers who settled at Sandtoft and the Isleonians whose living of wildfowling and fishing appeared threatened.
The river Idle was re-routed. Marl from the dried up length of the river bed was dug and spread on the now drained peat land to make it suitable for arable farming. In the mid 1850′s flooding took place and Lindholme Lakes was formed.
The smaller lake was created during the winter of 1984-85 from the inclines which led in to the main lake and other non-productive land.
The lake margins support a great deal of wild life with a variety of water birds, visiting species and game. Many wild flowers and plants will also hold the attention of visiting anglers and we ask for care to be taken to protect the environment.
