Wild Swimming


Wild Swimming

Open
All Year

Pleasant, gentle river swim. Use the Usk Island car park, just on the Pontypool Road out of Usk as you are leaving the town. (Gates locked at 8pm) Toilets are open. The water is deep under the old railway bridge. Swim up stream, the left hand side is deeper. There is an 800m swimable section until you reach a man made narrowing. The water beyond this point is too shallow for swimming for at least 50m, haven’t gone beyond the next shallow section.
