HISTORY OF PINEWOOD The Pinewood site was first recorded as the Pheasantry belonging to the nearby Summer Palace of the Archbishops of Canterbury.
The lake as we now know it, was opened for canoeing in 1972 by Commander Keran, who is famous for his naval exploits in WWII.
Recent improvements to the site include renewed and enlarged car parking. Secure palisade fencing around the building, providing a safe area for smaller events, with a separate entrance to toilets and showers for campers. Whilst renovating the inside of the building, we was able to replace the roof and repair all of the guttering & drainage.
We have also created a wild camping area designed for hammocks (available for hire), which overlooks the lake.
