A week before it closed its doors to the public, we visited this local lake to take a look at its preparations for becoming one of the venues for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Constructed and privately-owned by Eton College, it is managed by Dorney Lake Trust, the registered charity which operates the lake site. Normally visitors can enter the site and wander round the rowing lake. But it closed on 18 June 2012 to enable final London 2012 preparations to be completed. (It will re-open after the games). The photos show the preparations in progress.
We are lucky enough to have tickets for the rowing events and are looking forward to seeing some of the action!
