Bridgham location details

a small swim spot, various places to get in, limited parking, between Thetford and East Harling. Details of location, map, some summer photos

River Thet

down Bridgham Lane, off the street, Bridgham.


A couple of laybys and a small area next to the bridge, plus possibly further up the lane, though branches placed in the spaces to make that difficult by nearby landowner.

Might be possible to park in a layby or in the village hall car park, walk across field.

It doesn’t get that busy, except in the height of summer, but not suitable for a large gathering with lots of cars!

Swim points

just 2 of the deeper points marked, fairly near the bridge, and on a bend a little way downstream. It is also possible to swim above and below the weir, and slide down it, in summer at least, and possibly to swim upstream from the bridge. None of this, except for the pool, is very deep.
