More than 200 people braved the freezing temperatures today to take a dip in Windermere.
The aptly named Big Chill Swim was held for the first time, but organisers hope to make it an annual event.
This is John Bevir's report.
The inaugural Big Chill Swim has taken place in Windermere. More than 200 people took part in total.
A variety of races took place, from endurance swimming to shorter charity events. The water temperature was just 4.6 degrees and competitors weren't allowed to wear wetsuits!
