Newnham Riverbank Club


17/04/2011 by Carl Reynolds

On the way back from Shropshire. The sun was out and the River Granta beckoned from J12 of the M11. Just 5 minutes away. We indicated left and went. Out of the car and down the lane

watery way beside Skaters Field

Past the notice board showing it was cool

get in

Thinking for a moment before committing


And finally down the steps and in

access to bliss

Unfortunately there were a few badly steered punts about. Louts it seems are classless.

12 degrees C

    Hi, I’m a local Cambridge swimmer (including the granta from a punt). I’m trying to find out how to become a member of NRC?
    Would be very helpful!

    • Charlotte – I don’t have the number. But it is on their gate. Go down to Skaters Field and there’s a little lane down the side. Knock on the gate at the end and someone will sort you out. It’s about £20 per year.

    Or call the phone number on the gate. I’d try a weekend afternoon.
