Taking The Plunge | Anna Deacon & Vicky Allan

This inspiring book explores and documents the outdoor swimming community, and the elements of healing and friendship found in the water.

Writer Vicky Allan and photographer Anna Deacon journey together to discover and share the supportive, energising and inclusive wild swimming community, and the moving personal stories of those who enjoy and benefit from immersion in open water.

It features portraits of the swimmers in awe-inspiring scenery, in all weathers, including extremes of ice and snow and serves as a guide for newcomers, with advice on what to wear, how to take the first plunge, how to keep safe and warm, and where to go.
