Ella Foote

Ella mostly swims in the rivers around Surrey, Berkshire, Bucks and Oxfordshire. Ella writes for all sorts of national media, often about swimming or water quality and loves to chat. She has completed swims like an English Channel relay crossing, the Thames Marathon 14k and the Dart 10k, as well as smaller more joyful dips and dunks across the country.

In 2018 she launched Dip Advisor. An intrepid swim explorer, she is constantly seeking out new rivers, lakes, ponds, seas and pools to plunge into. You can follow her and her swimming on Instagram.
