The aim of my caches is not to have diffuculty in finding the caches but for people to visit places which you might have not visited before in our beautiful Maltese countryside if you are Maltese and for tourists to visit places that tours in malta do not offer.
Chadwick lakes (or Wied il-Qlejgha) are artificial fresh water lakes between Rabatand Mtarfa on the Western part of Malta. A dam was built by Mr. Osbert Chadwick in the late 1890s allowing fresh water to gather after winter rain. Apart from serving farmers in the area who irrigate their fields with it, collected rainwater serves as a habitat for different flora and fauna.
Chadwick lakes provide a very beautiful backdrop for picnics and hikes, and indeed several people flock to the lakes on wintry Sunday afternoons and enjoy the picturesque atmosphere that the water provides, while children pass their time trying to catch the little frogs that populate the area.
