Visible from bottom of car park field, https://goo.gl/maps/UPV5jvQtjxcEGUUN6 but when flushed some go to Lavell's Lake, others go to Lea Farm Lake to the West. Lea Farm Lake is members only, but open to non members when a member is present. Parking is restricted and if no lay-by spot suggest paying in DAC car park opposite, or at Museum of Berkshire aviation https://goo.gl/maps/4qf8JEbik83Jjwou8 then walk NE along old Colemansmoor Road and right on Sandford Lane, then inside Lavell's East until you reach the car park field.
