Swim 34: Thames Valley Park to Shiplake College

We did this swim on the Sunday of Reading Festival weekend but there were no issues - you would have never had known it was on.

We met at Shiplake church (there is limited parking along the road opposite the church, which is obviously a potential issue on a Sunday). 

There is alternative on-street parking available on Mill Lane, here: 

We left as many cars here as possible here. We also called the college and got permission to leave a few at Shiplake College boathouse with our dry clothes.

We then shuttled to Thames Valley Park for the start of the swim.

We swam down to Sonning Lock where we stopped for a snack, then down to a beach just past the 'Wires' for proper refuelling and stopping for anyone who wanted a shorter stretch before continuing down to Shiplake College for a total distance of just over 6km.
