about us

OW SWIM is the trading name for the swim sessions run by ACTIVITIES AWAY in Lincoln.

Situated to the South of the city centre we are just 10 minutes by car from the A1 at Newark and easily accessible from the city and surrounding areas.

Our lake is an old gravel pit and is fed by rain water and ground water. We have no drains, rivers or ditches discharging into the lake which means our water is very, very clean.

We have it tested every month in the swim season and the results are shared with our customers. We consistently score EXCELLENT when our samples are compared to guidelines set out in the Bathing Water Quality Directive 2006/7/EC
