Dolphin Model Boat Club has regular meets throughout the year - see our calendar section.
Our home waters are in Orpington, just off of Kent Road. We use a small man-made public pond which is sandwiched between trees along side the A224 Cray Ave and Kent Road (use BR5 3RX). The pond is drained during the winter period to prevent cracking of the concrete structure. The pond itself is approximately 15m wide by 30m long. It is 0.5 to 0.8m deep and can have algae on he surface during the warmer months. There are public Toilets in Priory Gardens or the The white Swan BR5 4AD is close by. The gate is only open when the pond is hired. Other times parking can be hard on the main road.
The pond is shown on the maps below (right click for a larger image):
