Friends of Radley Lakes Home Page

Find out about Radley Lakes and the Friends of Radley Lakes, how to join us and participate in our activities and support the Lakes.

Friends of Radley Lakes (FRL) is a community group which exists to care for the Radley Lakes area, between Abingdon and Radley in Oxfordshire. We work closely with the Earth Trust, which is managing Thrupp Lake, an important part of the overall area.

Members of FRL take part in conservation work parties, and we organise regular social and fundraising events.

We also comment on planning applications and other matters which may affect the Lakes.

Latest update from Earth Trust can be found by following this link to their latest newsletter
