Re: River Wye - Builth Wells to Boughrood

Please don't park in front of the new school access gate - find alternative parking across the bridge in the village of Boughrood. Thanks!

Re: River Usk - Talybont to Llangynidr

Please avoid damaging the crop in the field at the get-in: there's plenty of room to walk around the edge of the field - we risk losing access here if crop damage continues...

Re: Afon Mellte

Please do not egress river-right at the Mellte / Neath confluence (between Dinas Rock & Glynneath): I have been contacted by the landowner there, who explained that what used to be wasteland is now part of his garden and he doesn't really want canoeists walking through it (or even camping on it!). P...

Re: River Dee - Horseshoe Falls to Llangollen Town Weir

Horseshoe Falls access: the tenant of the field at the Llantysilio access point has politely requested that paddlers carry their boats down the hill to the river, rather than dragging or tobogganing, to avoid destroying the grass which he rents for grazing. This is the least we can do to continue to...

Wye & Usk Access Arrangements

The Environment Agency is still claiming that the Wye & Usk Foundation arrangements are a 'success' because they have improved access for canoeists (compared to the days of the old access agreements) and because paddlers in general abide by them. Canoe Wales does not formally recognise the agreement...
