On a hot summer’s day, what could be more refreshing than slipping into the cool, clear waters of a secret lake? And what could be more exciting than plunging into a hidden waterfall? Britain’s rivers, lakes and waterfalls are cleaner, safer and more accessible than at any time in living memory and the health benefits of a natural dip are increasingly well known. To celebrate, award-winning author and photographer Daniel Start returns with this revised and expanded version of the best-selling guide to Britain’s swimming holes.
This is the 2013 (2nd edition) which is the newest edition available.
For local / regional (non UK) coverage of wild swimming places, you will find more places, and the additional coastal locations, in our individual Wild Guides, or more detail in the Wild Swimming Walks series.
The all-new bumper second edition (2013) of the best-selling Wild Swimming photo guide is now fully revised and expanded to include 200 amazing new wild swimming locations (400 in total), brand new coverage in the South-East and the Midlands, new information for kids and families, new ideas for pubs, campsites, boat trips and weekends, new ratings on safety and access and improved maps and digital grid references. This revised and expanded edition of Wild Swimming features the same winning formula of stunning photography, engaging travel writing and practical guidance.
