I am NOT impressed with the wild swim map. When you add a spot, there may be a time that you want that spot DELETED. However, it cannot be deleted as it doesn’t work!

Hi Wild Swimming, just wanted to say I really like your site. My husband and I like swimming and have just started to explore more unusual places having mostly swum in UK costal areas plus some lovely places abroad. We are mid 40’s now so looking for places with not too difficult access. Would it be possible to put a question on the review section asking about access for futher info?
Many thanks for your efforts, this site is on my favourites list for hopefully much future use.
