Sunday Lido by the Lake 2020
Relax by the Lake reading the Sunday papers, observing the array of nature and wildlife; ducks, dragonflies, moorhens, buzzards and a beautiful kingfisher. Plunge into the crystal-clear water, feeling liberated and invigorated, experiencing the power and beauty of wild swimming.
The lake is a sacred and functional space, the water is integral part of the nursery feeding the plants that we grow and providing a home to a wealth of creatures. These wild swimming sessions are aimed at those wishing to immerse themselves in nature and enjoy the tranquillity of the space. We therefore ask attendees to be respectful of the space, the wildlife and people around them.

N.B. - We welcome swimmers of all ages above 18, we always have a lifeguard present but ask that participants have a good level of fitness and are confident in deep water. We will ask you to fill out a short health check questionnaire on arrival, but please discuss any health issues or injuries with us so that we can fully support you. We believe that there is no such thing as bad weather and ask that in the event of rain or gloom you arrive prepared with warm clothes, wellies, umbrellas etc. We have some undercover areas available, but the main decked area is open to the elements. This event is subject to bookings so we are unfortunately unable to run the event if we do not get the minimum required number of bookings, however we will provide at least 72 hours’ notice. We will also cancel events if there is a chance of lightning, this might happen quite close to the start time of the event, due to the unpredictability of our UK weather.
