As summer draws to a close, we've been mapping the best swimming holes in the country - with the help of our readers.

We all have our favourite swimming spots for beating the heat, and our interactive map shows where the best ones are. See the map below.

If you've visited an old family favourite this summer, or discovered a new one, send us a photo, the location, and some details on what makes it so great. We'll add it to the map. 

This resource will keep growing as you send us in more photos and locations - so don't be shy if you know more than one.
