Pagans of the Thames,
Welcome to the Lessor Sabbat of
Litha. It's Solstice weekend and mid summer is upon us - time to
celebrate the wonders of the British Summer.
Before the swim there is a test of your navigation skills to find the
meeting place. To avoid paying for parking we will meet on the single
track Ham Lane, just as it crosses the river a short way upstream of the
finish at Old Windsor Lock:
You can park on the verge at the edge of the road. (At least that's how
it looks from Street View.)
*We'll meet at 10:30am BST on Sunday 23 June 2013.
*Get changed, walk up to Romney Lock crossing the Albert and Victoria
bridges with a brief excursion into Datchet along the way.
We'll jump in at Romney Lock and swim down to Old Windsor Lock - this is
swim 66 in Michael Worthington's /*'I ? the Thames*' /and is about
4.8kor half a Dart.
Haveelevenses half way down at spot to be found on our walk up - around
From Old Windsor Lock it is brief walk back to the cars.
Then on to a pub for lunch - probably the Bells of Ouzeley - Have you
been to a Harvester before?
Sef and Jeremy
PS Sorry about lack of camping this weekend - suitable camp sites all
taken. We'll try again for weekend of 6/7th July.
