Dancing Ledge is a man-made pool to the west of Swanage near Langton Matravers and can only be accessed by foot (or boat or helicopter I suppose!).

However, many people still make the effort to get there and this is an account written by a 78 year old recently:

“Had a good outing today to Dancing Ledge Pool. A little Wild outdoor Swimming.

It’s only a small pool, about 15 ft by 30 ft by 6 ft deep but it had beautiful seaweed and limpets in it.

“Quite a scramble to get down to the ledge, especially the last 10 feet! Wasn’t sure if I would be able to get back up.

“Water was not as cold as I anticipated. Not bad for my first sea swim of the season.”
