Open Water swimming Directions: it starts on Tuesday

We are starting Tue 19th May at Elton reservoir and you can swim any time between 5 and 8pm. You must have a wetsuit and brightly coloured swim hat and be able to swim 500m continuously. Water temp is 12 to 13 degrees so it is not warm up enough yet for under 16s if they are new to open water. The reservoir looks beautiful though with swifts and swallows swooping over the water

Directions to Elton Sailing Club.
If travelling down Bolton Road (A58) towards Bury turn right at Wellington Pub into Kitchener Street, signposted Elton Reservoir and Alpha Hospital.
At end of Kitchener St turn right into Buller Street. Turn left over a smalll bridge signposted Alpha Hospital. Once over bridge bear right and down lane to Sailing Club.
Don’t rely on a sat nav, it may take you towards the reservoir from the wrong side along a lane which has a locked barrier
