    I wrote this book for anyone who has ever stood on the edge of a lake and wondered "Can I swim in here...?"


    Back in 2013, I was that wondering swimmer. New to swimming outdoors and eager to broaden my horizons beyond my daily swim in Derwent Water, I couldn't find the information I needed in existing books or maps. So I set out to document the major lakes of the Lake District, walking and swimming my way round Cumbria. Vertebrate Publishing brought my dream to life in this beautiful full colour book published in April 2020. You can read about me and my experiences swimming in the Lake District which are woven through the information for each lake.
