Lake use by outside organisations

The use of the lake is shared by four clubs comprising sailing, water skiing, model boats and anglers.

Telford Sailing Club (TSC) uses the lake on alternate days (as do the other clubs) so does not have sole use of the lake every day of the week. It is therefore not possible for TSC to authorise lake use by outside organisations or for the use of club house facilities

Kayaking and Canoeing

As its name suggests Telford Sailing Club specifically supports the sport of sailing and does not at this time promote the use of the lake for kayaking or canoeing.

Jet Skiing and Kite surfing

Priorslee balancing lake covers approximately 19 acres of water, it is therefore considered unsuitable, due its size for the above sports.


Swimming is not allowed in the Lake.  Severn Trent Water PLC, the owners of the lake, specifically ban swimming in this lake and it is in breech of their lease agreement for the club to allow anyone to swim. There are many signs around the lake advising that swimming is not allowed and this safety  information should be adhered to at all times.
