I couldn't find the wee-free lake.   I need to get tinternet on my phone sorted I think.  Got to Shepperton then realised I'd left behind the map I'd printed off.  Drove round where I thought I'd remembered it to be but no luck so came home.

Oh no Soupy! You missed a brilliant lake! If you take the road down to the Thames Court Pub from the roundabout at the bottom of Shepperton High Street. Go round the bend past the restaurants and on the left is a sign towards Thames Court, which is also signposted as a dead end, take that and a little further on, on the left, is the sailing club and it's marked up 'Swim' (although you have to look over your shoulder once you've passed the small turning!! Follow that down to the grassy car park!
There's changing rooms in the sailing club with hot showers and a bar above!
Lovely sandy patch to get down and into the clean, fresh water. Very, very few weeds! Just the odd strand or two floating free on the surface.
I'm very impressed and free for first visit!
Open 'till 11am I think on the weekends so no need to have to get up at stupid o'clock!
You can hire wetsuits from them too. Very friendly people. And the bonus for me was I bumped into an old mate who does IM stuff too!
I shall be back on the weekend, probably Sunday!

Oh and no speedboats or water skiers either!! The lake's only used for swimming!

Really glad you liked it to PS. I've got nowt else to compare it too but I did think the mini-sandy beach was all jolly civilised. Run by v. nice peeps too.

Soups - persevere in finding the lake - it's such a lovely spot.

Sadly, can't do next two weekends but will be back to do my impression of a damsel in distress in a couple of weekends time.

I am aiming to be there this Saturday and / or Sunday morning... it had better still be weed free!  Like the sound of a bar...Might have to make it there on an evening.

I passed the sign for Thames Court pub 3 times!!!  I used to go there with friends who lived nearby and was convinced there was no lake along that road, just the river so presumed I was wrong.   I remember the sailing club now.

I will try and get there at the weekend.

They intend to keep it open as long as they can, It was getting dark at 8pm tonight when they close it down. Not sure the bar will be open early in the morning though! And, if you're as keen as Dusty take your shoes and have a run around the lake afterwards! He did at least 2 laps I think! Not sure how far it is for a run, but it looked pleasant and no aeroplanes taking off / landing overhead and no motorway zooming past!
Debster, I owe you a drink for mentioning it!

Planning a run after too, although not sure if it will be there or elsewhere.  Really looking forward to it though.  It's time I got a good swim in.

Holly, thames path is a few hundred yards further down the road apparently, so our run can be anything up to 50 miles or more....

But maybe an hour or so would be more civilised!
