Tamar - Gunnislake EA gauge

Post by Dawlish Paddler » Thu Nov 17, 2011 7:29 pm

Can anyone tell me at what range on the gauge that Horsebridge to Gunnislake would be a suitable club paddle? Current level is 0.91m, well within the green section. I am looking to organise a club paddle this Sunday and not paddled it for years.

Cheers

Is this section paddleable in the summer? Any clues on the access agreement situation?

Generally too dry in summer - it certainly will be right now.

There is no legal necessity for an access 'agreement'. Paddle sensibly and enjoy.

I paddled this stretch last summer with my son and daughter in law. We were challenged about the legality of our paddling the river by a bailiff or gamekeeper who was on the Devon bank. Also, while my wife was waiting in the car at the designated egress point at Horsebridge she was challenged by a local who said that she shouldn't be there and there was no access along that side of the river.
