The water from Highgate Ponds runs into the Fleet River which ends up in the Thames. I was swimming in the Thames near Kelmscott in Oxfordshire during the Bank Holiday Weekend. I was part of a group celebrating a friend’s 50th birthday with a canoe/camping trip from Lechlade to Oxford. We experienced sun, wind, rain, and hail, grebes, herons, barges, beer and blossom.

  1. Thank you Charlie for being such a swim enthusiast. I would never have considered venturing in if you had not – and it was a joy.

    I will remember this next time I am dithering or using my energy trying to persuade others to go in so that I can!

    Looking forward to many beautiful river swims this summer/autumn.

    Kirsten, I and others often swim in the stretch that we finally boated up yesterday – back to Donnington Bridge. Its a great spot too.
