We are proud to be able to offer early morning and evening open water swimming sessions in beautifully clear water on the outskirts of London.

 

We have over 6 years of experience running Open Water Swimming and we pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable atmosphere and welcome all levels of swimmers. Our priority is your safety and enjoyment of our lake, and ask you to please follow all safety protocols. We are a NOWCA affiliated lake, but nowca membership is not required to swim at our lake, and invite everyone to join us.
