Swim 49: Old Windsor Lock to Runnymede Bell Weir Lock

We meet again, same as Swim #48, 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, walked the sort distance down stream to Old Windsor Lock:

jumped in and swam down to Bell Weir Lock (taking care to keep to the right on the approach to avoid the weir):

from where we had a magnificent view of the M25 in all it's 14 lanes of glory. This is swim 67 in Michael Worthington's 'I ♥ the Thames' and is about 4.5km. You can optionally shuttle some cars down to the Runnymede Pleasure Ground car park here, near the finish or walk back: (£4.50 / 3 hours or £6.00 all day.)

And then we headed off for lunch at the Jolly Gardners - highly recommended:
