Swim 50: Runnymede Bell Weir Lock to Staines Penton Hook Lock

We met here, in the Runnymede Pleasure grounds car park:

(Parking is £4.50 / 3 hours or £6.00 all day.)

We shuttled a couple of cars down to a small car park at Egham Hythe, near the finish but on the wrong side of the river. (But you can swim across, right?) here:

(Small car park but free.)

We got changed, strolled down to Bell Weir Lock:

We jumped in and swam down to Penton Hook Lock,

stopping for Elevenses on the way down. This is swim 68 in Michael Worthington's 'I ♥ the Thames'' and is about 4.5k.
