Swimming Membership

The Lake is open to members and their guests only, every day from May to September inclusive. There are also sessions in the winter months for winter swimming.  

We are also open to Community Acces Users from May to September which allows access to the Lake on quieter days.

The lake is only suitable for competent swimmers and passing a 50-metre swimming test is an essential requirement for membership.

Senior members (18 and over) can bring a maximum of two guests to the Lake. Junior guests must demonstrate the ability to swim 50 metres by taking a swimming test at the Lake. Please note, for safety reasons we do not allow entry to the Lake by members of the general public unless by special arrangement


Following consideration by the Executive Committee it has been agreed that due to the high numbers currently on the waiting list we will not be asking for new applications to join in 2022.

This applies to all types of access, weekday, winter swimming and community access all of which you either need to be a member or on the waiting list to apply.

You may wish to check our web site periodically from March/April 2023 as we will advertise if and when the waiting list is re-opening and details on how to apply to join the list. 

Kind regards

Alison Laity - General Manager
