Dart Access Info

Post by Duz79 »

Hello All,

Having not paddled the Dart loop for about a decade due to being overseas, I was wondering what the latest info on access is as am looking to get back on it this season.

I've heard New Bridge is now a paid car cark and that Holne bridge is much more difficult in terms of egress / parking.

Any specifics and tips on the access side?

Cheers in advance.

New Bridge car park is much smaller (the rear gravel section is now blocked off), Spitswich car park is also closed. Holne Bridge has no parking at the bridge or the layby further up on the left, you can park by the exit gate by the weir. Other than this weekend the RDCP car park is also closed. There are no tips for parking TBH other than park any extra cars, except the two cars needed for shuttling, away from the river area or bag a lift after paddling.
