Every year, all across Europe, we re-afirm 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.
In a nutshell, BIG JUMP is a European river swimming day, where people
reclaim their environment and demonstrate their wish to have clean and
living rivers again.
Park at Walton Well car park (Pay and Display - £1.10 for 3 hours or
£2.20 for 5 hours.)
Alternatively, there is a free car park at the top end of Port Meadow at
Godstow Road but that's a bit of a hike 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
See you there,
Jeremy, Chris and Sharon and the flying salmon of the Isis.
