It may be at the limit of your range but it is a good pond in a lovely location out on the M4 near Pangbourne. (My subs like it there!)
There is a twice yearly boat show where bringing your boat would give you a chance to try the pond and entrance is free.
Have a look at:
Cheers, I have been using my Sheerline Akula in the Royal Victoria Dock but its a bit scary I and I don't want to risk the Typhoon there. Colney Heath is not deep enough, but I'll check out Broomfield Park (I am building a surface scout boat from a Robbe kit with an underwater camera and sonar to measure depths and look for underwater objects!).
I have seen people with model boats at a lake (the one around the periphery, not near the restaruants where the coin operated RC boats are) at Bluewater shopping centre as you drive into one of the car parks. Not sure how deep it is though.
Any other ideas?
