Would you go swimming in a lake, river or quarry?

The sand Quarry in Horbury Bridge, which is also a sailing club. Always reasonably warm a couple of feet at the top but incredibly cold beneath. I've also swam in Ullswater (only last year), mainly because my brother tipped me out of the boat!

Known as the Blue Lake, near Arthog, North Wales.

 

I remember parts of me turning blue swimming in North Wales, eg in Lyn Idwal.............. :(

Horbury Bridge? I'm confused, spent a lot of my childhood there and I can't place this at all.

I suppose it's more Horbury Junction. Go down towards the river calder, through the railway tunnel and there's a big lake nestled between the M1 (J39), the river and the railway line. It's easy to see from the M1.

Ahh ok yes, defiantly not Horbury Bridge!!!

In fact if you look just over the tracks you'll see "The Lagoons", which were a popular place for those who were, ahem, often ill and unable to attend Horbury school on the warmer afternoons....
