The Big Jump aims to reconcile people with their rivers. People across
Europe, nay, the world, will be jumping n at the same time, 2pm, on Sunday,
July 14th to show that rivers are for life, not just for effluent discharge
and casual boating.
For those who want to jump in Oxford, there may be a few people meeting to
jump in the Thames at Port Meadow. Here's a map showing Walton Well Carpark
and the location of the Fiddler's Island Bridge. We usually jump together
from the bridge at 2pm into the weir pond (not the river) and then swim
upstream and back down again afterwards.
The carpark is no longer free. If you want a free carpark, at the other end
of Port Meadow, off Godstow Road in Wolvercote I believe the carpark is
free - a fair in both senses walk.
Have a look at some of the lovely photos and films taken two years ago here:
Take your friends - take a picnic, have fun.
Please note that OSS Oxon exists to put swimmers in touch with other
swimmers, not to organise swim events or in any way suggest that outdoor
swimming is a safe activity or that you should go swimming. If you choose
to swim you do so entirely at your own risk and on your own initiative, and
any plans you make are your own responsibility.
