These pages provide a gazetteer of the “best” wild swims that I have enjoyed in England.

In the drop down its ordered alphabetically in “sort of” geographical areas. I’ve tried to provide basic information on location, grid refs, features, hazards (as if..), date of last swim and a photograph!

Watch out 007, Digger is coming for you….

“This summer I went swimming
This summer I might have drowned
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet
And I moved my arms around.”

(Loudon Wainwright III, “Swimming Song”, 1973)
