I had a lovely 2 day paddle down this a year ago with a group of kids from school. Went from Little Barford to Holywell using many of the back channels suggested on the guidebook page.

Going again this Sunday/ Monday - is anyone aware of any changes I should know about?

Cheers, Jules

Twelve months on and we're doing it again. Not much had changed last year, will this weekend be any different?

Cheers, Jules

And again.

The backwater section that starts just below Brampton lock is getting quite overgrown/blocked with fallen trees in the 200 metres below the small weir on the right-hand route. A saw was useful but not essential yesterday.
