Swim 12: Northmoor Lock to the Ferryman, Bablock Hythe

The secret to this one is leaving your car on the same side of the river as the Ferryman pub. That is the left bank. Your satnav will probably take you to the right bank if you're not careful.  It's only 50 yards as the crow flies, but it's a good 20 minutes by car via the nearest crossing at Newbridge!  The Ferryman is another big pub with an ample car park. Accommodating to swimmers if a little grumpy with it.   We met in the pub car park and walked back upstream to the start at Northmoor Lock.

The distance is 2.5km, and is swim 24 from I Love the Thames.  This marked the end of our first 6 months and David Walliams' first day.

Tell the Lockkeepers!
