Dips and Chips - by Penny Wilkin and Emma O'Brien

An Illustrated Guide to Wild Swimming in Central England

Dips and Chips


By Penny Wilkin and Emma O’Brien

An illustrated guide to wild swimming in Central England.

This is a 250 page book with over 60 places to swim across Central England. It’s written by swimmers for swimmers and we are proud to say that we have swam at every single place mentioned in the book.

It is beautifully illustrated by artist Emma O’Brien and is as much a wonderful coffee table book as a handy guide of places to swim.

It includes detailed directions of how to find each swim spot, useful tips on how to keep yourself safe as well as general information about wild swimming. It is peppered with amusing stories and anecdotes from our adventures, as well as Emma’s beautiful illustrations, all of which we hope will inspire you to go for a dip and explore some new places.

It’s called Dips and Chips because if there’s a chippy nearby then Emma always follows a swim with a bag of chips! Of course, there’s not always anywhere to buy chips, so we share recipes for our favourite vegan cakes and snacks.
