Wild Swim/Walks

I first started wild swimming in 2016. It began as just a seed. I visited the shores of Llyn Idwal (Snowdonia) and then Derwent Water (The Lake District) during the cold winter of 2016, and I wondered what it would be like to dip a toe in the silky waters. From there I researched and read books and discovered a whole new world of wonders. Not only do David and I go on walks, but we walk towards bodies of water where I ultimately get to swim. Derwent Water was my first swim, and below you will find a list of all my recent adventures. Enjoy!
