Re: Access on the Hampshire river Avon......again

Yes it is a public footpath but you do have to go off the footpath a little to launch. The weir was awesome but no photos im afraid. the weir is not really known by any paddlers so we need to get it publicised because i beleive it is the best playspot in the south at the right level!

canoe rental southampton

Hi does anyone know if its possible to rent a canoe in Southampton. I know Woodmill used to? I'm afraid to tell you that I'm kayaker , but I would like to take my 5 year old nephew out on the water in the summer and a canoe would probably be better than a kayak!
Thanks

Re: RIVER FROME (Woolverton to Freshbrook)

thought it would be interesting to see how the zoom flume looked in flood (1.75) today, very scary is the answer, as i was on my own i did not think it was very sensible to try it, but i would say at least a level 2 probably a level 3, on a stretch of the River Frome!
