The countryside around Fishlake remains relatively untouched by modern agricultural development and is remarkably rich in wildlife. Take a stroll along the banks of the River Don across a landscape of low-lying meadows and damp pasture, criss-crossed by green lanes and drainage ditches. The network of hedgerows survives largely intact. Some are hundreds of years old and support a wide range of shrubs and trees.

Fishlake became an inland port, with a quayside on The Landing, once known locally as Cuthbert's Haven in memory of the spot where St Cuthbert's body was landed in the late 9th Century.
