Stratford to Bidford on Avon

Post by neilos » Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:21 pm

I am planning a canoe trip from Stratford Upon Avon down to Bidford on Avon. Has anyone completed this section? I know I can drop in at the park and get out at the bridge in Bidford.
Does anyone know if there a riverside pub in Welford on Avon, approx time to paddle between Stratford and Bidford and anything to avoid.
Regards Neilos

A nice paddle via lots of locks with not much planning for canoes. There is a pub on the riverbank in Wellford. My boys lost one cheap paddle but we managed to catch up with it. We paddled until dark which was nice but made portage a bigger pain, should have given ourselves more time.
If anyone wants information on this section of the Avon, give me a shout.
