Re: River Avon in Salisbury

Indeed, but you're not supposed to deviate off that right of way & it doesn't give you permission to stop for a picnic - which many people do.

Re: WW rivers in the UK with the same name!

Presumably the East & West Lyn of Devon are related to the Linns (waterfalls) of the North.

The Welsh guidebook lists 6 clydachs, 6 clywedogs, 3 dulais, 5 dulas, 2 gwili, 2 honddu, 2 llafar, 2 llynfi & 3 twrch. (I have also done both gwilis!)

Re: Is this the best time ever to go paddling?

Adrian, closed season is only for certain kinds of fishery.

Unfortunately most of the country (apart from Broads) does not have the same easy access to lakes....

Re: White water

Yes, but no. Not close enough at current time as almost all in Wales & mostly too low to paddle. Although there is Chester Weir. You may have heard of Llangollen & the Tryweryn.
