DescriptionOn 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 - with or without the kids or car - 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!
