The Kensal Take-Over of Merchant Taylor!

A great nearby open-water swim - book here!

A Beautiful Setting

Merchant Taylor Lake, near Watford, is one of the great nearby open-water swim spots!  

It's just a 35 min drive from Kensal Rise or can be reached by train/bike. 



And we are going to again take it over for a morning!

As you can see from last year's report, we team up with Active Training World & Aloha Tri to rent the lake for our 'Kensal Takeover'.

You can swim only or get lessons from Rav Digne (pictured) and his team.


It's on Sunday 12th May, 10am -11 am this year - Limited places booked via

Children's lessons

Rav and his Aloha Tri team also organise swimming lessons for the children, making this a family morning out.

The lessons need to be pre-booked at
