Coming up to Caversham Lock I drove past a man who’s swimming the whole length of the Thames, from source to sea.
Lewis Pugh started on 17th July near Cirencester and his destination was Southend Pier. He had already been through Oxford and Reading and had Henley-on-Thames, Windsor, London and Greenwich ahead when I passed him. He had a support team on a narrowboat following him.
He completed his record breaking swim of 203 miles in 21 days. Read about it here.
