If that's at Rose Bridge he must be breaking the 4 mph speed limit!
Hallowed in silver, the water skier
Skims the flashing lake
Like a vaudeville trapeze artist,
Torpedos the hissing spume
On screaming blades,
Splintering the shocked water
Into clouds of spindrift.
Who would ever, years ago,have thought to see water skiing in Wigan! A giant leap of imagination I know, but it could be Rhode Island, New England! ;-o ....!
....and why not?
Where is this Mick?
Anne its at the rear of Bryn Hall, you go down Landgate lane from Bryn and take a track down on the left.
They also do wild swimming on this lake.
On a Wednesday evening I think it is used for triathlon training.There are loads of cars going to it down Landgate lane.
Haloed in silver.....

What's wild swimming
'Wild swimming'! I also wondered about that Beryl....Perhaps all will be revealed. It could only be a notion invented by Mick himself....
( Unless theres a couple of sharks lurking beneath!)
I think wild swimming is swimming in a large area of water,esentially in the wild.A lake, ocean, sea, not in a swimming pool.
Wild swimming is where you get 25mtrs start and then they let the shark loose. If you make it across the lake with both legs intact they reduce your start to 20mtrs and so on until you lose both legs or the shark gets bored and goes home.
I've never heard it called that Sonia.... It's nothing new though is it? Rivers and lakes have always been used for swimming in. So when lads jumped in the canal years ago to 'cool off' that must have been 'wild swimming' as well!
Yes Veronica, I think you are right!!
