Wild Swimming in Leicester – The Tree

Wild Swimming was at one time popular all along the canal and in the rivers and lakes of Leicester. Today swimmers have retreated to out of the way locations because attitudes towards outdoor swimming have forced them away from the deeper waters of the city in public view. Even so on a sunny day huge numbers flock to enjoy Leicester’s City Parks and take a dip in the refreshing waters that welcome them.
