Derwent - Matlock Bath to Belper

Post by rogersavery »

We did Darley Bridge to Matlock bath yesterday and was wondering why there is "no canoeing" downstream of the slalom course.

Is it an access issue or some other reason? If it is access issues - who is the access issue with? Fisherman?

Access issues are probably down to the local canoe club continuing to peddle old rubbish views on river access. Paddle it. I've done most of the Derwent above Matlock now and love it. The Wye is good too. Look on here for level recomendations during the fish breeding season.
