Rutland Water Bathing Beach

Updated: Sep 12

Bank Holiday Monday proved to be an exceptional day at Rutland Water.

Despite a damp start, the sun came out to play as did hundreds of children who delighted in the seaside atmosphere. Overflow carparks strained at the seams as thousands flocked to a facility encouraged and promoted by the Outdoor Swimming Society.

They built it and they came in their thousands.

A heartening example of what can be achieved to advance the interests and quality of life for all.
