Imagine a unique outdoor swimming experience set on the Yorkshire Moors

A vision for an accessible, safe, natural outdoor swimming destination for everyone

The Yorkshire Swim Works is a new, ambitious and exciting project. The ultimate aim is to offer an all-year-round opportunity for people to connect with nature in a wonderful place to swim outdoors, take a soothing sauna, and stay in a contemporary eco-lodge.

The full experience

Open water swimming has had a surge in popularity in the UK over recent years and the benefits to physical and mental health have been well-documented.

Taking a dip outdoors boosts dopamine and serotonin levels and stimulates the release of feel-good endorphins.

It is important to be safe whilst swimming outdoors – but the choice of safe venues in West Yorkshire is limited.

Imagine swimming outdoors in chemical-free, naturally filtered water

The aim is to put nature, health and sustainability first. The vision is to provide a pool based on a biological filtration system, using carefully selected aquatic plants and minerals.

It is already happening for thousands of people around the world, who are enjoying this carefree healthy bathing experience, in public pools with biological chemical-free water treatment.

We would love to see this to happen in the UK, especially in Yorkshire!
