The River Wye has recently attracted many new wild swimmers to its shores and local enthusiast, Angela Jones, has been doing just that for over 35 years. Known fondly as the Wild Woman of the Wye – and found above and below its waters all year round – Angela is often asked advice about wild swimming in the river. Her business, Swim Wild Wye, was therefore formed to share her lifelong passion with anyone interested in joining her.
