River Dee : glyndyfrwdwy to horseshoe falls

Post by frankthesurf » Fri May 13, 2016 7:04 am

Could someone tell me the access point for this section.
I've been and looked at what's supposed to be the access field and it's still not clear to me.
The field mentioned in the guide looks very private.

When we got on at Glyndyfrdwy a couple of years ago it was by the Coed-Y-Glyn Log Cabins with the agreement of the landowner. Might be worth a try?

Alternatively it looks like SUP UK are based there too, so maybe contact them too?

Were you looking at the field on river right below the bridge? That is not normally used nowadays. Access is across the bridge, turn right and at the first gravel track follow the signs down to the river. as John K said it the Coed-Y-Glyn Log Cabins. farmer asks for £3 a person launching (farm is the old house opposite the track down). Either knock and pay or put money through letter box. it is a good safe place for leaving cars.

Tommy Davies and his Dad who run the cottages and farm are real friendly people - really supportive of paddles against the monopoly the anglers want of the river. They helped me greatly with my Steam Train Paddle charity do to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. Have you thought of getting the train back up?

Hi Dave
Re train No didn't consider it.
I live locally and only paddle this section once.
Want to take my kids down as they are just getting into paddling.

That would make a Great Day Out. You might even be able to board a train at Berwyn Station or paddle the canal to town.
