Wild Swim : River, Lake, Lido and Sea: the Best Places to Swim Outdoors in Britain

Description

In this beautiful and inspiring guide Kate Rew, founder of the Outdoor Swimming Society, takes the reader on a wild journey across Britain as she plunges into rivers, lakes, lidos and seas. Together with documentary photographer Dominick Tyler she tells the stories of over 100 remarkable swims. Each is a mini-adventure, accommodating humour, glee, beauty, discomfort and hard fact as she and a band of fellow swimmers travel the country with enough common sense to avoid drowning and enough recklessness to dive in. As well as tales for armchair swimmers, this book contains everything needed for would-be adventurers to make their own journeys, with over 300 referenced swim spots. There's something for everyone - waterfalls, natural jacuzzis, sea caves and mellow rivers - suiting every kind of swimmer from a five-year-old in water-wings to an epic adventurer, wild camper, hiker, lazy-hazy summer picnicker or cold-water connoisseur.Containing swim ratings, useful contacts and a fully comprehensive map, "Wild Swim" is the definitive guide to outdoor swimming in Britain from the Outer Hebrides to the Isles of Scilly and everywhere in between.
