Open Water Swimming

Inside this peaceful quarry there are no tides, no rip currents, and definitely no jellyfish. Plunge into tranquillity beneath the imposing, vertical cliff faces in this sheltered, hidden lake, and concentrate on just swimming. Triathletes already train here, but we encourage everyone who swims to give it a try. There’s nothing like the freedom of swimming in a 150-metre lake with 12 metres of water beneath you and 35-metre granite cliffs towering above.

Age limit: From 16 years (under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times in the water at a 1:1 ratio)
Price per session: £6 
Session length: 1 hour

 


Availability: Everday on the hour

To have a go: Participants must be strong swimmers and able to swim 200m unaided. If you don't intend to wear a wetsuit, you MUST  bring a tow float.
