    Does anybody know the condition of the St Albans model boating pond. I know it’s had issues with water levels sometimes and obviously COVID-19 has curtailed its use. Will it soo be in use again?

    The Club History

    The Society was founded in 1947 to cater for people interested in Model engineering and all related activities which includes model locomotives, trains, traction engines, stationary engines, model boats, yachts, barges, and general engineering and technical subjects.

    The Society has always catered equally for model boating as well as model engineering enthusiasts. In the early days when electric motors were large and inefficient, and small IC engines rather expensive, the main motive power for model boats was steam, so it was natural that it should be strongly linked to model engineering. In the '50's and '60's members of the Society were in the forefront of hydroplane development and running in the UK.
    It was nearly 30 years before the Society was able to build a track, located in a school in Harpenden, which served the members well for over 20 years.

    After being moved out of this site (So the site can be developed) we had a couple of years without a track, but in 2001 we got a new one, this is the track we are currently using.

    We now rent a private track in Chipperfield, which limits us to certain running times. More information about the track can be found under Puffing Field Track.

    We meet at the lake most Sunday mornings from about 10am (weather permitting) Please see our calendar for special event dates. https://stalbansmes.com/2021-calendar/


    We currently use the small lake in Verulamium Park but are able to arrange the use of the large lake for members under certain circumstances. The park has numerous facilities including ample parking, toilets, a cafe and on the warmer days an ice cream van. More information about the park can be found at: https://www.stalbans.gov.uk/verulamium-park
