About: Warleigh Weir is often seen as one of the best wild swimming locations in the UK, and for good reason! This beauty spot is popular amongst strong swimmers and families, as the weir itself is shallow for the most part but you can swim out towards the deeper areas if you wish. There is also an ice-cream van on site so you could easily spend an afternoon here!
Parking: No parking on site. Visitors are encouraged not to park near the weir, and instead walk, cycle or get the bus.
