Lovely swim here. Quiet, very slow flowing at the beginning of August 2013. Easy (muddy) access about 100 yards west of the bridge on the north bank. Mixture of mud, rocky and weedy river bed. Depth about 6-7 feet midstream. Can often park near bridge.

A really lovely swim. Heading away from Leigh, turned right into the fields and walked about 1/4 mile to where path splits a little. Very quiet spot and water lovely. Bit muddy getting in/out, but no big probs.

Could this be a Secret Swim place?
