Leziate Sailing Club and Country Park
Leziate Sailing Club was a fine venue at the waters edge of Leziate park with outstanding views and an excellent reputation. It had a grand marquee-style function room with large windows and elegant drapes opening out onto a balcony with steps leading down to the beautiful wooded garden and lake. Overlooking the lake, the club hosted watersports and had two all-weather tennis courts, frequented by locals and visitors alike. Once a popular weddings and party venue, the club changed hands in 2012 and sadly went into administration in 2016 after suffering bad reviews and poor service. It was closed for good and left derelict for a couple of years until it was sadly ravaged by fire in the summer of 2018. The site now has planning permission for 7 new homes.
I have fond memories of that place. My sister and her husband were the first couple to be married at the venue, we had work parties there, and the last time I was there I said a fond farewell to a dear work colleague who sadly passed away. Leziate Sailing Club has good memories for me as I'm sure it has for many other people who ever visited. It's sad to see it completely devastated, never to be seen again.
