River Clough (Sedbergh)

Post by Frank B » Thu Oct 24, 2013 3:40 pm

Does anyone know if there any trees blocking the river ? I am told that earlier in the year a tree was causing problems near to a bridge. Would like to paddle here soon if levels permit

There's a tree down on it somewhere, Didn't cause us any problems but can't remember where it is, sorry I cant be more precise, paddled the Troutbeck, Sprint, and Clough a week or so back and there were 5 trees down between them the only portage was on the sprint.

the tree blockage you refere to MAY be on the river lune approx 250 meters of the road bridge near sedburgh which is blocking the centre channel and would be a bad strainer/pin if you dont see it in time. HOWEVER! you may be right about the clough

At the beginning of the week there was a tree between the first & second drop you get to. At a lowing level it didn't cause issues. However - we've had some big levels this week & haven't been back down so not sure if its still there or been washed further down to cause problems elsewhere. As soon as we have an update we'll post.

Spotted the tree that was in the Rawthey wedged on the bank way way down on the lower Rawthey above Railway bridge falls.
