Review

"A book of wonderful things to do in Britain's rivers, lakes and waterfalls, including swimming with otters, discovering underground caves and even searching for gold" -- National Trust Magazine, Summer 2008

"The first guidebook to Britain's freshwater swimming holes" -- Sunday Times Magazine, 4th May 2008

"Excellent...This is an essential guide for anyone planning a dreamy summer of camping, picnics and swimming." -- The Daily Telegraph, 16th June 2008

Synopsis

On a hot summer day, what could be more refreshing than slipping into the cool, clear waters of a secret lake? And what could be more magical than plunging into a hidden waterfall pool? Britain's rivers, lakes and waterfalls are now cleaner, safer and more accessible than at any time in living memory. To celebrate, award-winning author, jungle explorer and ex-hostage Daniel Start set out to find Britain's favourite swimming holes and has discovered that the art of taking a wilderness dip is far from lost. Wild Swimming provides all the practical information you need to enjoy 150 magical swims across the UK i?? with or without the kids or car i?? and combines them with ideas for that perfect summer day out. Through this great British tour you'll be able to swim with otters in Dartmoor, go river-rafting in Yorkshire, night-swim under the stars and learn how to build a woodland sauna. Discover the famous wild swimmers of the past and read stories of heroes, lovers and ordinary folk who have long enjoyed a natural dip under the willows.

Adopting a similar format to the popular Cool Camping series (also from Punk Publishing), Wild Swimming combines inspirational photos, engaging writing and practical information to make this a truly unique British travel guide. Pick up, strip off and jump in!
