Re: RIVER MINT (Patton Bridge to the Kent Confluence)

There is a tree down somewhere between Patton Bridge and Garlic Weir, portaged at a high level (on left hand bank). Might just be possible to run far left through branches, but not by us. None others down on this section at the moment but plenty of annoying twiggy bits to brush through.

Re: RIVER CRAKE (Coniston Water to the Sea)

Double tree across Nibthwaite rapid has now been removed. There is still a tree trunk in the water running parallel to flow about one third of the way from the left hand bank about half way down the rapid. Not a big problem to pass, not too unpleasant. You might want to inspect it if with a group of...

Re: RIVER SOUTH TYNE (Garrigill to Alston)

Near end of November there was a tree down almost right across river. It as washed against a foot bridge some way down from Garrigill. The bridge was just after the river did an s-bend: first to the right and then the left. This made it hidden from above. We ran river at 1.15 on Alston gauge. It mig...

Re: RIVER CRAKE (Coniston Water to the Sea)

Did this river in mid November and tree mentioned by Loz was still there then. Suggest getting out above Nibthwaite rapid (1st real rapid on river) and inspecting on river right - it was hard to see from eddie at the top. We did it at 0.70 level and there was no way to paddle down - two trees right ...

We have cut back the tree that was spoiling the line on the left hand side of the 1.5m drop in the woods.

Massif Central in France

Has anyone paddled there outside the season in Pete Knowles book ie outside August? I am thinking of going there in 2006 but wanted higher water levels than August. I am after a trip of around grade 3, the odd bit of 4 should be ok. When is there water about? and how reliable is it? I am guessing Ma...
