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

by Kate Rew, with photography by Dominick Tyler - £14.99  Guardian Newspapers Ltd (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780852651223 | ISBN 10: 0852651228

In this stunning, full-colour guide, Kate Rew, founder of the Outdoor Swimming Society, takes the reader on a wild journey through Britain, covering 200 rivers, lakes, tidal pools, lidos, estuaries and sea swims.
Whether you are a seasoned outdoor swimmer looking to discover a hidden fairy pool, or a young family seeking a fun day out, Wild Swim has all the information and inspiration you'll need to get you stripping and dipping.
With an introduction by bestselling author Robert Macfarlane, and each swim tried and tested by the author, this beautifully illustrated hardback book is not only a practical guide to outdoor swimming in Britain but also truly gets to the heart of how it feels to be immersed in nature.
Containing difficulty ratings, sections on safety and points of local interest, including campsites, cycle paths and walking routes, Wild Swim is the definitive guide to outdoor swimming in Britain - from the Shetland to the Scilly Isles, and everywhere in between.
