Caversham Lakes Trust

Caversham Lakes

Caversham Lakes is a set of lakes created through gravel extraction between the suburb of Caversham in Reading, Berkshire and the hamlet of Sonning Eye in Oxfordshire, just north of the River Thames.

The company Lafarge undertake the gravel extraction. Caversham Lakes Trust Ltd has been set up to administer the lakes.

The Thames and Kennet Marina is located here. The lakes are also used for sailing, Reading Sailing Club, and waterskiing. Recently the Redgrave Pinsent Rowing Lake has been created.

Sonning Regatta has been held every two years since 2000 just upstream from Sonning Lock next to the lakes. The lakes have been used for the regatta when conditions were too bad on the river.
