Radley Lakes

Radley Lakes near the village of Radley, Abingdon in Oxfordshire, is a 30-acre lake, bristling with wildlife, surrounded by mature trees and studded with islands where birds nest. The lakes are exceptionally biodiverse with County Wildlife Status. It wasn’t always like this.

Thrupp Lake was the subject of a long and at times bitter battle between local residents and energy giant npower, who own the land. Npower planned to infill the largest surviving lake with fly ash from nearby Didcot power station and Oxfordshire County Council awarded planning permission for the tipping in breech of the local plan.

A group of local people formed Save Radley Lakes and applied to get Thrupp and Bullfield Lakes declared a Town Green. Alas in 2007 the application was rejected. After a long and active campaign, in May 2009, npower announced that the Earth Trust had been appointed to manage the lakes. Save Radley Lakes became the Friends of Radley Lakes and now work closely with Earth Trust to protect and nurture the Lakes.

CPRE Oxfordshire supported the campaigners in their fight to save Radley Lakes. We administered their funds, enabling them to collect Gift Aid and we helped with their media and publicity.

Water matters

It is said that the south east of England has less water per head available than countries such as Sudan. This puts a premium on conserving every drop we have in the most sensible way possible, including reducing use and waste, and recycling wherever feasible.

We care about water

We are very conscious of how important water is as a creator and conserver of our cherished landscape and natural world. The stress and damage caused by drought or flood are self evident.
