Buckland Park Lake
Buckland Park Lake comprises some 50 acres of water within a site totalling 100 acres. Landscaping around most of the site was completed in 1990 once quarrying had finished and the forestry around the lake is therefore mature. It also contains areas of ancient woodland and the Surrey Champion field maple – the largest recorded field maple in the county. Over 60 species of bird-life have been observed on the site in the first eight months of 2017.

Access to Buckland Park Lake
Public access will not be possible before the site is formally open. Trespassers risk not only being removed from the site, but prosecution and a police record. We adopt a strict policy on this: the water is deep and dangerous, and youths under the influence of alcohol or other substances they bring to the site, fail to realise that swimming in very cold, deep water is extremely hazardous.
Our business partner, The Surrey Hills Adventure Company (The SHAC), have restarted outdoor activities on the lake, notably paddle-boarding and outdoor swimming (in wetsuits). If you would like to know more, or try out these activities, contact SHAC via the SHAC website.
Our 2021 fly-fishing season will operate between April and November; our members enjoy fishing for trout on this lake and on Lawrence Lake. If you are interested in joining our fly-fishing syndicate read more about Buckland Estate Fly Fishing on this website.
Assuming that the Government’s COVID-19 roadmap does not change, it is planned to open Buckland Park Lake to the public on or shortly after 24 May 2021. It has been a long and rather delayed journey but it is hoped that this will be a fun and popular village facility. Further details will be available on our new website which should launch in April 2021. We hope to arrange various launch events nearer the time. Further information relating to season tickets, obtainable at a discounted rate to village residents, will be also be available in due course.
