Other info  Parking is limited, lanes are tiny, especially the lane approaching the church from the East. Much better to cycle or walk, or approach by water. The map below shows entry points (purple) and possible parking, also footpaths (these are not suitable for cycling). If approaching from the church, go through the churchyard, enter either to the right of the footbridge, or cross the footbridge and enter to your left. You can also walk along the riverside path (can be flooded in winter) and find an entry point. Second entry point is to walk by the river, cross the footbridge, enter the pool to your right. If the water has been switched off and is not running through the lock, then the pool can be murky. Please be considerate of this tiny village, and that you might be approaching through a churchyard. Please follow general guidance about being a responsible swimmer, especially this summer 2020 advice: https://www.outdoorswimmingsociety.com/the-oss-and-lockdown-swimming/

Please note: all swims are at our own risk. Including a location does not indicate that it is recommended or that it is safe; each must do their own risk assessment each time they swim or travel to a location. I accept no liability for the choices that people make. There is Swim Safety info on this website, and on Outdoor Swimming Society website, Survive section.
Please follow the Outdoor Swimmers Code, and Outdoor Swimming Society advice on responsible swimming at this time.
