Swim

This is a rough section of my site documenting the pools I’ve swum in. It may seem like a niche topic but after moving I’ve had to start searching for a new pool to get my laps in. Having myself searched for other swimmers blogs to see what they recommended in their city I thought I would add to those recommendations.

I hope that someone in a similar situation finds these pages and it helps.

Happy swimming.
