Swim in the Itchen Navigation at St Cross
Swim outdoors in the Itchen Navigation from the base of the historic St Catherine's Hill just outside Winchester. The river is crystal clear and shallow and can be accessed from wide open meadows and playing fields that run alongside the bank across the road from the car park. Whether after a bit of paddling or a proper swim downstream, this is an ideal spot even on a busy day.
