Wild Swimming

You are welcome to visit and swim in the Ebridge Mill basin and along the Ebridge to Bacton Wood Lock section of the North Walsham and Dilham Canal.  Many open water swimmers come and enjoy the canal, to swim a distance or to splash about or jump in the basin.       Please note:  all ‘wild swimming’ is at your own risk.

There are a few informal swim groups locally, based on Facebook, which enable swimmers to meet up and exchange advice
