River swimming in the Esk

Been to a great event or venue in the Whitby area and want to tell people about it? Going to one? Talk about it here.

River swimming in the Esk

Anyone know a spot on the Esk where river swimming is viable - somewhere between Danby and Sleights/Ruswarp?

Grateful for any tips. Thanks

We used to swim and play in dinghies all along its length. Wherever you can get access without trespassing.

Don't go in near the salmon leap though. Renowned for being treacherous there :shock:

The salmon leap being at Ruswarp, presumably?

I was thinking of the Glaisdale/Lealholm area. But perhaps down stream from Grosmont would make more sense, as the Murk Esk will have added water by then.

Thanks.
