  • Where is that ?
    Looks lovely

  • Just ventured out into for the first time myself this weekend. We are spoilt for choice round here. This is Helford river.
    Absolutely loved it despite not getting on top of my breathing technique in the choppy water.

  • That's Panshanger in Hertford, 3.5k run from my house. It's owned by Tarmac and they have staff living in the cottages on site. They start work at 8 and drive around checking for dodgy fishermen, the main lake has several cctv cameras to catch fishermen too.
    I mix it up between here, Hartham Common or a short drive to Dobbs Weir 4/5 times a week.
    Great for birds, too. A swim and seeing owls and hawks before work gets me through the days!

  • You’re Lucky , I’m by the Thames but you can’t move for whales and seals

  • I'm from around these parts originally but gave "London" a decade before leaving Forest Gate in 2019 for the little one. Both me and my fiancée wanted to go "home" which turned out to be a bloody good call during lockdown. Having this space has literally kept me alive and I feel exceptionally lucky!

  • Went to Slough for work. Detour on the way home to Marsh Lane and the Jubilee River. Fantastic, I now want to go to Slough again.

  • Going to try get a swim in today. I’m in SW , anyone know of any good spots an hours train away? I was thinking Tilford if anyone knows some nice spots nearby ? I’m going bikeless but don’t mind an hours walk from station to a spot

  • Why not Frensham?

  • Jubilee River near Taplow station. 15 minute walk down Marsh Lane. There is an easy place to get in just up from the weir and there will probably be the odd other swimmer about.
