Adventures in Wild Waters –Sophie Pierce and Matt Newbury

Join Sophie Pierce and Matt Newbury for a dip in the River Exe, followed by an evening of swimming stories, from the sublime to the ridiculous.  Their new book, Wild Swimming Walks Exmoor and North Devon, is out this month, and the pair will be sharing some of their favourite swim spots and walking routes in this beautiful part of the world, as well as showing images of many stunning locations.

Sophie and Matt, who have written five outdoor swimming guides to date, will also talk about their many escapades researching the books. Not every research trip is a success! They’ll look at the restorative power of wild swimming, and how it’s bringing together growing numbers of people, united by the joy of immersing in wild waters as well as eating lots of cake afterwards!

Please also be aware that the access to the river is steep and you will need to have a reasonable level of fitness to manage this. We hold no responsibility over any person who decides to swim in the River. Please only make this descion if you are a healthy, able swimmer.
