Description by Kate Rew on behalf of Outdoor Swimming Society
Please tread lightly, pick up other people's rubbish as well as your own if you see any, and be aware that you are in a private field, there by the grace of the landowner's good nature (and the unstoppable flow of people).
Please show respect for neighbouring houses and the field itself: do not block gates with vehicles, be thankful for the hospitality: do not scorch the grass with barbecues, throw leftover food in the river (remove all waste with you).
This is a wonderful swimming spot but it is popular - enjoy it, be thankful to the landowner for allowing access and leave no trace! Show less
Description by Kate Rew who added this swim
Warleigh Weir. Up to 500 swimmers a day visit this popular swim spot near Bath over summer. There's a big sunbathing field, a long deep relaxing swim upstream and downstream of the weir, and leat where people take inflatables.
Swimmers are allowed here by courtesy of a local farmer - make his generosity easier by taking some of the litter (someone else's) with you when you go home.
