Trees on Mellte & Usk / recent floods

Be careful, especially if you know a run well & don't always inspect - pics from South Wales Kayakers facebook page:

& on Sennybridge section (which is popular for beginners):

Nedd Fechan also has a selection & there are likely to be many more new ones elsewhere.

White Water Consultancy & Llandysul Paddlers both had rivers flowing through the buildings, so won't be open for a while...

Walked over the bridge at Abercamlais at the weekend. (About two thirds the way from Sennybridge down to Aberbran.) The bridge has suffered considerable damage in the recent flood, the upstream parapet and part of the roadway have collapsed. There were two diggers on the riverbed clearing the debris. I guess at some point there will be some scaffolding in place as the bridge is rebuilt.
Canoeing - bigger boat, broken paddle, more skill!
