Kiz: ‘Oh dear… roots! Good thing I’m having my hair done later!’

Blake Mere, between Buxton and Leek

Sooze: ‘Picked #259 from the Wild Swimming (by Daniel Start)
book Kiz gave me. This is Blake Mere between Leek and
Buxton in the Peak District. The book did say it was ‘tiny’.
What it didn’t say was that it’s essentially a bog.
I swam a lap anyway (no, not snorkelling).
(The bench in the photo commemorates 50 years of
the Ranger Service. The etching reads:
‘In the summer at Mermaid Pool
As the grass grows all around
I think I sometimes hear her sing
For the mermaid’s home I’ve found.
Poem by Harriet Burn’)
