Dorney Lake (also known as Eton College Rowing Centre, and Eton Dorney as a 2012 Summer Olympics venue) is a purpose-built rowing lake. It is near the village of Dorney, close to the River Thames.
The lake is privately owned and financed by Eton College, which spent 17 million developing it. Additional grants, totalling 500,000, were obtained from Sport England, UK Sport, the DCMS and SEEDA in order to build the lake's finish tower. The project was completed in 2006, after 10 years of construction. Although it is primarily for use by the school, the facilities are hired out for rowing, as well as for canoeing, dragon boating, open water swimming and triathlon training.
