Plenty of July and now on into August has been pretty hot for us here in the south west of England, as a result I’ve avoided walking on occasions and instead headed for a swim. This one is from mid July and previous wild swim spots of Shilley Pool, Sherrah Pool, Spitchwick and Cadover Bridge have been well used by others, so instead I had a drive and found another good spot near to Buckland Bridge just downstream from Spitchwick. There were a few other people here and there are some car parking spots both on the road along the bottom and as it rises up towards Buckland in the Moor itself. They fill up quickly and we were lucky to get the last spot. The water was cool, especially compared to the air temperature but its perfect once you are in. The boys both loved it, and we will definitely be doing this more and more in the hot weather.
