The authors in this collection share short essays about their relationship with the Hampstead Ladies’ Pond, which is at times a source of comfort and joy; a place of self-discovery and belonging. Nature and water are elements that feel necessary to balance life in London and, the musings of these fourteen writers offer experiences and perspectives that are varied but shared by many. These essays beautifully capture the changing of the seasons and the wondrous essence of wild-swimming and the Pond.
