This is a collection of swim accounts and swim places.


Current advice on swimming – see Outdoor Swimming Society advice on responsible swimming at this time

See Swims for posts on the situation, and Online resources – heritage & the arts and Online resources – swim advice + exercise & health and Online resources – places, nature, wildlife


I describe some of my Swims, and give location details for them on my Places pages.

I discuss issues including safety and access and bathing water quality.

And I have a separate section about two exciting new projects about outdoor swimming in the Brecks. These projects, Tales from the River and Healing Waters, are part of The Brecks Fen Edge & Rivers Landscape Partnership Scheme (BFER), supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

During 2019 I did clusters of swims in different parts of East Anglia and Eastern England each month – see the Swims section for more info

I will also give links to directories of swim places and other river and outdoor swimming issues on my Links page.

My website header and the photo on this page show one of my favourite swim spots in summer or winter, Swanton Morley Mill. The header photo is taken in the mill pool, looking up towards the upper weir and rope swing, showing trees in winter sunshine reflected in the water.
