  • Short Summary

    Swimmers take part in a race in the River Trent in Nottingham.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Nearly 400 swimmers in great race! Thousands line the banks of the Trent to see 'Nottingham's Big Swim'."

    Nottingham, Nottinghamshire.

    LS People in swimming costumes climb onto barge moored across the River Trent. People watch from the banks.

    A first group of swimmers dive off from the barge and begin to race along the river.

    Shots of two swimmers crossing the finishing line.
