Prime Lakes and Dales area:

Tees
Greta
Swale
Clough
Rawthey
etc.

Rainchasers will give you maps:

Grade 4 near Wakefield

Grade 5 near wakefield

There's good biking too, if you're into that

You'd like the Swale and the Kent.

Come to Ilkley for a beer.

Mark I live 15 mins from wakefield, the places mentioned above are about an hour and a half drive if not more away, not alot around wakefield above grade 3 and even then there rarely worth paddling,but as has been said the areas above are easily accessable via the m1/6/6/a1

I agree with RD scott. you got to be prepared to travel a few miles and even then things might not be in condition as levels in the dales area rise and fall by the hour in some cases. worth checking rainchasers website raingauge for current state of play. Im in the dales from 29th but prob only g3 or 4- if im feeling lucky but dont mind coming along to help shuttle or rescue cover etc

Mark - if it rains in the Dales, get yourself up this way and we'll go do Pen-y-Ghent Beck or something. Likey likey. I have a few shifts over the hols but they're usually morning only.
