Low Water Levels

 As a working reservoir Carsington Water like many other experiences fluctuations in its water level for water supply reasons.

We are currently experiencing low water levels which is limiting access to the water for some craft. It is not currently possible to launch Keelboats of any type from our slipway or surrounding beach area.

Most other craft including sailing dinghies, windsurfers, kayaks, canoes and SUP's are still possible to launch, there may be a small delay at busy periods if you wish to use the slipway as it is operating at reduced width.

If you wish to clean craft after use, there is a hose at the top of the slipway which is available to all water users for the purposes of washing equipment.


Please use extra caution around the margins of the reservoir as there can be weed patches and thick mud in places.

We are still open every day 10.00 - 18.00 and look forward to seeing you on the water!
