New campsite facilities at Alton Water are set to open next month.

Works are on schedule at the new campsite and caravan park at the reservoir, near Ipswich, developers say.

The site, set in 400 acres of countryside, now includes a new shower, toilet and wash facility and 88 new pitches.

Huntington-based Mick George Ltd built the structure and carried out groundworks and mechanical and electrical works across the site, and also refurbished its tearoom.

Alton Water Park is the largest water park in Suffolk, providing a holiday location, tourist attraction and a setting for walks, cycle rides, wildlife spotting and family picnics.
