Swim 13: The Ferryman, Bablock Hythe to Pinkhill Lock

Another access issue. We met at The Ferryman

and swam down to Pinkhill Lock and then walked back to the pub for some nosh. Alternatively, if the weather is chilly, you can park in Farmoor village by Farmoor Reservoir which is a ten-ish minute walk from the lock. Be careful not to flash the locals, they don’t like it!

We stopped for a warm-up where the path rejoins the river a little over 1km from the lock, at the site of Skinner’s Weir.

The swim is 3.8km, and is swim 25 from I Love the Thames.

Tell the Lockkeepers!
