Scouted the river today, as I have relatives who live very nearby, there is a gauge at the put in and the river wasn't in on it. - It hasn't rained in a long while!The river just looked runnable today, but if you were in a canoe you might struggle as in some places it got down to 3ft wide, admittedly at average levels it would look much more acceptable, Looks like a bit of fun as an exploritary paddle, but I wouldnt be too excited from what I can see. Maybe worth a visit if your nearby, and if you dont fancy it you can allways head over the the nearby river Medway.

Anyway, this is the link the the few camera phone pictures I took at the put in!

Paddled the river today 4-4-10

Got in at the suggested put in, the river was at 7 on the gauge. Nice little ditch, no problems with depth, fairly deep in most places, we paddled down to a pub at Stile Bridge, which is a good pub and had no problems with us in cags + swimming shorts! We didnt have to portage any weirs, although had to duck under a few bridges, still no portages. You will 3 car bridges, all of which provided some entertainment with the weirs underneath. Nothing amazing, but if your nearby and fancy a change from the Medway, give it a go!
