You have to be on the ball. One lad got swept through a tree and lost his paddles last time I paddled it. I think one group...

If its EPD doing the design then there might be some hope as its run by a group of boaters.
Hopefully they will/would voice some of the concerns.

We paddled the Crake on 18/02/07. The only major tree hazard was the previously mentioned one above Spark Bridge there is a sneak route through the branches - looked like a couple of branches had been removed. There are other trees but were easily passable at the low levels we paddled at. With the n...

Nope - well not that I know of.

Sheffield CC pool sessions are down there and they use the Leisure pool complete with wave machine and 'lazy-river' type features.
Entertaining for a while but expensive!!

DONT GET Plastic I had a super scrappy and I waked my head on a rock n it split in 2.
That to me sounds like a good thing.
It shows that the helmet has absorbed the impact which other wise would have been transfered straight to your skull.
