Every year, all across Europe, we re-affirm our connexion with our rivers
and explore our aquatic origins by leaping, plunging, slipping or
tip-toeing into our local rivers at the same instant in time.
The EUROPEAN BIG JUMP is a river swimming day, where people reclaim their
environment and demonstrate their wish to have clean and living rivers
Walk, Cycle or even Drive (Parking at Walton Well car park (Pay and Display
- £1.20 for 3 hours or £2.30 for 5 hours.):
Alternatively, Walk or Swim down from the free car park at the top end of
Port Meadow at Godstow Road that's a bit further away:
Bring food and drink for yourselves and/or to share for a picnic afterwards.
We will have a barbecue for anyone who wants to have something warm and
charred. And for those wanting more of a swim, this is the perfect stretch -
trot upriver your required distance and swim back down. There will be plenty
of companions and hopefully a nice sunny afternoon.
See you there,
Jeremy and the flying salmon of the Isis.
