Paddled the river Alyn the other night - Will write a full report on it if it would be of any interest to anyone on here.

depends if you write it in english or welsh!!

I presume the bit nearer mold is smaller - is it paddleable?

and by the look of your pic of rivers of wales, I presume you have the book. is there a load of info in that? what is on canoe wales is quite limited. (a book i haven't got and goes for silly money second hand etc on amazon or anywhere I have seen)

have also seen your link to new book out on 14th july - is it in there? and in how much detail?

Guys
watch out for the works going on at Rossett Weir
Its being worked on and a new EA Fish pass being installed.
Its not safe to pass atm so climb out just upstream and re enter downstream.

Happy paddling

Did this run on the 28th December 2012 after seeing it in the welsh rivers book I received for Xmas. It's a nice run including a few easy drops, chutes and 2 portages around fallen trees. The scenery is grim though! Very grim! Litter everywhere including a dead dog on the bank as you pass beneath a bridge!So if you don't mind encountering litter and dead animals on your runs give it a go. I won't be doing it again now that I've ticked it off!
