New Steps and Handrails

The steps and handrails leading down to Swims 1, 2 and 3 were installed a few years ago and they are now showing signs of wear and tear.  This week we have made a start on reconstruction and improvement of these steps, starting with Swim 1.  We are hoping to accomplish this by volunteer effort […]

Improved Access for Disabled Anglers

Wheelchair access to ‘Swim 4’ at the western end of the lake is already possible thanks to the new all-weather footpath from the Hambledon Road car park that was completed in 2017.  We are now planning further improvements that will enable access to the larger ‘Swim 3’ as well for anglers with impaired mobility.

Footpath Improvements

  This week, we braved the cold weather – including a few snow flurries! – to spread some more wood chippings over some of the very muddy paths along the southern bank of the lake. This should make them much more passable than they have been during the very wet weather that we’ve had recently.
