Welcome to MARLENS.

We are enthusiasts for Clevedon Marine Lake, determined to ensure that this seafront jewel is kept in service and used for the benefit of people in Clevedon and N.Somerset.

You should find here everything you want to know about MARLENS.  If anything is missing just ask.

Our main public events on the lake are the Aquathlon (swim and run race) in at the end of June, the Marine Lake Festival in September and the illuminated night sail of model boats in December. Details will be on this web site. We also have an ever-growing Marlens Music scene which stages the Winterfest at the end of January, plus other social / fundraising events through the year.

Canoeing and sailing are taught at the Marine Lake all the year round for schools and clubs, using the community fleet of sailing dinghies, kayaks and canoes.

The Marine Lake hosts regular activities by Clevedon Model Boat Club, Clevedon Canoe Club, Clevedon's sea swimmers and Clevedon Sailing Club, as well as visits by triathletes, Princes Trust Bristol, British Divers Marine Life Rescue and other groups. It is also open to members of the public who want to swim or bring their own boat (there is no lifeguard, so you use the lake at your own risk).

MARLENS will continue to lobby for our Marine Lake to be repaired and improved and try to ensure that the needs and ideas of all Marine Lake users are taken into account. We work closely with North Somerset Council (the lake owners) and Clevedon Civic Society, and are currently waiting to hear whether we have been successful in our joint bid for second round lottery funding to carry out major repairs.

It is important for a campaigning organisation like MARLENS to have members, so if you agree with MARLENS aims, please join. There is a membership form on this web site, on the AGM page.

The Marine Lake is only one part of Clevedon's delightful sea front which also boasts excellent pubs, cafes, the Grade 1 Clevedon Pier and wonderful views and walks.

Just behind the seafront you will find other shopping and foodie delights in Copse Road, Alexandra Road and Hill Road. A little further and you will find Queen Square with its shops and market. Make a day of it and stay for a meal in one of our excellent restaurants.
