JC MATHER

To celebrate his 60th birthday, John Mather thought it would be a good idea to swim the length of all seventeen lakes in the English Lake District. This proved to be quite an undertaking, requiring a much greater deal of time, effort and planning than he had anticipated!
From Brothers Water to Windermere, John’s icy endeavours were rewarded with tantalising glimpses of wildlife amidst the awesome mountainscape and variable weather that was thrown at him. Indeed not everything went to plan, however the beautiful fragility of this wonderful land made its mark in many ways, as recounted in this illustrated account of his journey.
John has swum in many places in the UK and abroad. His coldest swim was in the freezing waters of Siberia’s Lake Baikal!
