‘This is essential reading for the waterlogger in you and a perfect guide for expert swimmers who are looking to discover secret spots or for beginners who are looking for their first outdoor swim.’ – The Wild Swimming Brothers
‘This is a stunning guide to wonderful swimming options across the country. The author invites you to not take care of the book – instead readers should “cram it in your backpack … circle your favourite spots and pore over it in the pub”. Their intention is that the book will inspire adventures and help you identify a few secret swim spots of your own – I can’t wait!’ – Jennifer Watson, Beyond the Edge
