Summertime and the living is easy Tra la la - come and join us for a 
lovely swim in the Thames from the beautiful rural Shifford Lock to the 
metropolis that is Newbridge and the Rose Revived.  A mere 4.5km if you 
swim, like some of us, in a bit of a zig zag fashion - only 4.25km if 
you swim as straight as a die.

*We'll meet at 10:30am at the Rose Revived car park on Sunday 27th July

there won't actually be one in the car park :o) ))

and we'll either walk or shuffle up to Shifford Lock, flop into the 
water and float, bob, or swim a bit seriously down to the Rose Revived. 
Under the grade 2 listed new bridge - 14th century and new 'cos it was 
built after Radcot - at the confluence of the Windrush and exit 
elegantly on the left on to the terrace of the Rose Revived to the 
applause of the drinkers.

For those that want to shuffle a car we have an exciting alternative to 
the Chimney Meadows car park . . . .

(A bit of a tautology) and amble to Shifford lock. We can decide on the day.
