Manvers Waterfront Boat Club are ready to Welcome you!
The Lake was created in the 1990’s as part of the remediation works following the closure of the Wath Main & Manvers Main colliery complex and associated railway yards. In addition to its amenity & recreational value, the lake also serves a functional purpose as a balancing lake forming part of a sustainable urban drainage scheme for the surrounding residential and industrial developments.

Manvers Waterfront Boat Club was formed in 2011 and is based at Manvers Lake near Wath-upon-Dearne, South Yorkshire. The club has the use of a purpose built boathouse which is owned and operated by Manvers Lake & Dearne Valley Trust Ltd, a charitable company formed in 2011 to look after the lake and surrounding area.

Since its formation the club has grown rapidly to its current size of over 600 members participating in a wide range of activities. The club currently has sections dedicated to paddlesports (canoeing and kayaking), triathlon, running, angling, open water swimming, windsurfing and model boating. The lake is also regularly used by our partners such as Dearne Valley College and other affiliated organisations.
