It’s just after 8am in the morning and a group of south Londoners in caps with the word “Icicles” emblazoned on them are taking their dive into the 6.7 degree water at the Brockwell Lido. You can bet on finding them there any day of the week, come rain or shine. And they love it. In this video, the Icicles explain why it’s glorious to dive into the cold blue of the pool and how swimming at the Lido has led to many new friendships.
If you’re inspired by watching the video, then you can find out more about the group on their Facebook group here.
