    Heh, Shepperton lake is opposite Desborugh Island, which also has a small beach and is OK for Thames swimming. Gets quite messy as seems to attract scumbags who leave cans and bottles scattered around though.

    I was swimming with RubyToogood at a little spot a bit further in and we got heckled by some "lads". Well I did really - they caught me scrambling out in a most ungainly way. Ruby was floating serenely in the water.

    telbert Do you like sponge?

    When we were kids in the summer we used to swim in Barking Creek and the River Riding if we had no money for the lido. Used to smell a bit funky when we got out though.
