Description by Jason Schreiber who added this swim
The last remaining river swimming in the country. Founded in 1933, it averages 2000 members and provides idyllic swimming in the river Frome, sunbathing in a dedicated meadow, and chatting while sitting on the weir with other swimmers. Afterwards, try a cream tea at the local farm. It's run by Rob Fryer, from RALSA, and the farmer Peter Bryant
