History & 2012
Constructed and privately owned by Eton College, Dorney Lake is managed and operated by Eton College Services Ltd.
Dorney Lake was originally conceived by Eton College rowing teachers in the 1960s. They felt it important to construct a still water, all year round safe rowing course, offering greater safety than the River Thames, with its fast currents, varying widths and increasing traffic.
Construction began in 1996 and was completed on target in 2006.
The site is now acclaimed as one of the finest in the world.
