Opening 11th May 2014Sunday 11th May is our provisional opening date for this season. It is a provisional date because we are controlled by the water temperature with regards to opening. When the water reaches 12 degrees we will swing open the gates and welcome you all back. We have missed you so much. Getting excited now ............
Water levels update 30th January 2014
Updated 30th Jan 14 - As I write this I look out the window and see rain. I was just about to tell you that the water levels in the lake are lowering slowly but with the rain due I wonder if that may be about to change?
Our Lake & The River Thames collide
January 2014 Sees Ferris Meadow Lake become one with The River Thames. Today when we attempted to walk around the lake the water reached our waists. The beach has been washed away (again) and we are looking forward to the massive tidy up job that we will have ...........
Welcome to Shepperton Open Water Swim
Our lake is all about swimming first - which makes us a bit different! If you want to swim in open water at a unique location without the hussle and bussle of other activities then come and give us a try.
This is our lake, it's not shared with anyone else. There's no pressure from other users, there are no boats on the lake other than our safety canoes and there's definitely no feeling that you are encroaching on other, more profitable activities.
Our whole philosophy is that we cater for swimmers, we don't mind if you just want to do a leisurely 400m loop or are training for an Ironman or a cross-channel attempt. You want to swim in clean, clear water; you want to have a relaxed atmosphere; you need changing facilities and toilets; you would like a hot drink when you're done. All that, and more, is here for you.
And if you fancy something a bit competitive then we have regular timed swims that you can use to check your progress.
Not sure about getting into open water? Not a problem! We have guided swims for individuals and groups, there's a resident coach to help you progress and there's always a safety crew on standby.
