Matlock Boats

Matlock Boats are based in Hall Leys Park in Matlock, Derbyshire. The lake was originally named ‘Jubilee Boating Lake’ and was officially opened in May 1935.

Since then, hundreds of families have enjoyed the traditional fun of chugging around the boating lake on boats that are a throwback to previous generations.
