Skipton Canal

Anyone know of any access points near/in Skipton to get onto the canal please?

Usually get on at Niffany Bridge but appears to be works going on there at the moment and can't park.

Any advice appreciated.

Re: Running the River Rothey

Thanks for the replies.
The comments on the guide page seemed a bit out of date hence the question.

Running the River Rothey

Hi all.
Anyone know the current situation with running the Rothey from Rydal down on to Windermere?

We are a small group, max.6, having a couple of days paddling in the lakes over the new year weekend and looking to do something different than just being out on the lakes.

Thanks in advance

Hi there We have a VW T5 as our camper and paddle bus. Best decision we ever made! Have a mate who, for many years, ran a Berlingo and had that set up so he was able to sleep in it.
