Andrew Carter from BBC Radio Cumbria came down to our regular Monday evening swim in Rydal Water on a stunning Lake District June evening to find out what is the attraction of ‘wild swimming’ and we think he’s hooked.

The feature ‘Wild swimming in the Lake District’ aired on Mon 25 June 2012 on Mike Zellers’ show, it featured some of our regular swimmers who have braved the cold of the Lakes all through the winter including Charlotte Webb of ‘Wilf’s Cafe’ fame,  Pete Kelly from Head to the Hills (now Swim the Lakes) of Ambleside and ‘newbie’ open water swimmers getting their first toe in the water.
