Have you tried the Quays at Mychett?

Mychett was thick with weed a couple of weeks ago.  Much worse than Thorpe.

Not sure if my sighting has got a lot worse, but by constantly veering off to the left (towards the middle of the lake lol) I had a clearish swim at Thorpe today apart from a bit near the end of the loop. First swim I've enjoyed for aaaaaaaaages!

Had they cut any more of the weeds Ditchy?

Maybe I need to employ my own weed chopper to swim ahead of me and chop the weed in late season cos even that last bit of the Thorpe swim was a bit too much for my weak heart to cope with!

Weirwood looks lovely on the website. Wrong side of the M25 for me though.

Just checking the bank holiday weekend opening times Moulds

Tonka - I think East Grinstead tri have been using Weirwood this season for swimming but if you look at the water levels in there now, I doubt there is any swimming happening as they are so low. rode past there the other week.
