Wild Swimming is, apparently, now a very popular thing around the UK and in parts of Europe.
So much so that I’ve found out the BBC3 television channel have previously undertaken a series of programmes on it, with presenter Alice Roberts going skinny dipping in a tarn in Yorkshire. The other main channel in the UK, ITV, have also done something similar with British actor Robson Green sharing his love of wild swimming.
What is wild swimming? It’s essentially a case of going swimming in bodies of water where you would not normally expect to find swimming taking place.
I wasn’t previously aware of this as ‘a thing’, but I’ve spent the afternoon researching it, and was delighted to find a number of websites and books dedicated to the practice, and that naturism, or skinny dipping, are often found in close association.
