We paddled the river in Feb 2011 it was at 0.70 on the gauge and going up a little. The bridge at Brychgoed Farm still has planks on its left 'arch' but even better the right arch has a telegraph pole attached to the bridge with lots of barbed wire (with more wrapped around for good measure). After that there are three river gates, all pretty substantial and surrounded by loads of similarly substantial barbed wire fences which just love dry-suits and begs the question why the need for the river gates when stock is so well fenced in?
It's a bit of a pain, but at least you get to paddle and have a long walk.

Today (20/10/13) ran the section of the Senni described by Chris C. Shortly after the Gr 3/3 fall he described there is a tree across the whole river necessitating a portage (river left). Better not to run at all as there's a garden river left.

Paddled final section today 03/11/2013) from Trephilip bridge down - the two trees below Gr3 ish fall are (no surprise) still there. We cut a few branches so that boats can be easily passed through on far river left. There is a nice rock ledge above and below tree that makes task simple at the level we ran it (Pont Hen Hafod was 0.46 metres at 04:30 so would have dropped). If much higher it may be possible to paddle over (but...).

From the gauging weir down there are 3 trees right across (could paddle over them at 0.7, but not much lower, & above 0.8 would take you into the overhanging trees), then 2 snapped sheep fences (so open), followed by 2 complete fences, some more trees & the final sheep fence (near the church) is missing the left hand gate.

Trees gone below the gr3.
