This is a collection of swim accounts, swim places, and issues.
And I have a separate section, OS Brecks, Bathing in the Brecks: Outdoor Swimming past, present and future, about two exciting projects on the practical aspects and the history of 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, with one round up (Brecks), and others in a few subsequent posts and some earlier ones.
I will also give links to directories of swim places and other river and outdoor swimming issues on my Links page.
The weir below the three arch bridge at Swanton Morley Mill
My website header and the photo on this page show one of my favourite swim spots in summer or winter, Swanton Morley Mill, known locally as The Falls. 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.
