This review is from: Wild Swimming: 150 Hidden Dips in the Rivers, Lakes and Waterfalls of Britain (Paperback)
This is such a gorgeous book, just looking at it makes me want to be outdoors. I bought this quite late last year so I only managed to get out to a few swims in Derbyshire. I've already got my OL24 map at the ready with sites marked out for this years' adventures.

Swim site 72 Chatsworth Derwent was our first forray into the 'Wild Swimming World', which thinking of it now perhaps wasn't quite so 'wild', more like an entry level swim to get the feel for it. What I loved most was the beautiful colour of the water, all dark & rusty red. I've admired it from a far before but to actually submerge yourself in it is something amazing. The next place we tried wasn't far away, a little further down the river & had been recommended to us on the wild swimming website.

Normally I scuba dive which is such an amazing experience, but all the equipment & protective layers which are necessary to protect you from the cold have the disadvantage of cutting you off from really feeling the environment. Wild swimming it all about reveling in the outdoors, really feeling the enviroment & reclaiming our waterways.

A lot time, love & fun has obviously gone into the making of this book. It is stunning to look through & really well researched. Packed full of deatail. I can't get enough of it!
