Hi, anyone likely to be in the Thames in Oxford this Saurday morning?  I have 
the  pleasure of an overnight at the Four Pillars Hote,l off Abingdon Road  
(opposite the Hinkey Pool) Friday and wondered if I could gate crash a cold 
water plunge before I get off home to the Great Ouse?

It looks like the river runs adjacent to the grounds of the hotel - anyone know 
if this is a good swimming spot?

Regards all, spring is a coming - sometime soon,

Subject: [OSS Oxon] Swim at Dorchester and/or Little Stoke this eve and/or 
tomorrow eve (Mon 1st / Tues 2nd)


If anyone wants to join me either doing a pottering gentle breast stroke or 
head-down crawl then I can be at either of these two spots between 19:30 to 
19:45 start - the swim would be no longer than about an hour.

Temps are nice at the moment and so you can either suit-up or not.

I don't have any preference which spot I go to as they are both great , both 
straight, deep and wide and both suit all levels of swimming.

They are easy to get to, to park at and to change at as well.

Dorchester on Thames

This is marked where the lay-by is.

Little Stoke

This is where we would park - there is a track down to the 'Old Dairy' which is 
a 2 minute walk to the river, it's very secluded and peaceful here.

If anyone wants to join me on either day let me know which you prefer, else 
you'll have to take pot-luck and look for my Green Polo if you turn up on the 

Either way I'll be there between those times.

Only reply if you intend coming.
