Swim 48: Romney Lock to Old Windsor Lock

We met on the single track Ham Lane, just as it crosses the river a short way upstream of the finish at Old Windsor Lock:

You can park on the verge at the edge of the road.

We got changed and walked up to Romney Lock, crossing the Albert and Victoria bridges, with a brief excursion into Datchet along the way.

We jumped into the backwater at Romney Lock where one of the fishing platforms allowed for easy access to the water:

and swam down to just before the weir at Old Windsor Lock. You can't swim in the lock cut and the weir is dangerous so we got out at a convenient spot just short:

This is swim 66 in Michael Worthington's 'I ♥ the Thames' and is about 4.8k.
