Twenty years ago Clare Lake was dying, a no go area for nature lovers. The water itself was a red soup, noxious with the effluent of the adjacent bacon factory; it didn't help that the creamery was across the road and that the lake's bank had long been the town dump.
Now it is a pituresque parkland and lakeland idyll and one of the town's showpieces.
This is the rags to riches story of Clare Lake.
