As you walk, cycle or run around Hampstead Heath you catch snatches of the most delicious conversations. This blog will record those intriguing snippets in the hope that they inspire creative writers and thinkers with serendipitous slices of real lives.
This blog will also be the place that I record my year-round runs over the Heath and my swims in Highgate Men’s Ponds.
It will also cover wild-swimming around the world.
If you want to submit your own snatches to this blog then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Just about all the pictures on this site were taken with an iPhone.
Perhaps it might help someone get past a writer’s block or inspire you to swim or walk (and talk) on the Heath, but the whole thing is supposed to be for amusement. Mine really.
You can get more information about swimming on the Heath including weather forecasts, water temperatures etc from the Corporation website
