Mark wins with the Bovey - the section below the old mill down to the boulder choke would be a classic if it weren't for the trees - now to head back in time...

Both on same river.

Wrong country, but that's also what I would have said.

Excellent choice Jim, a great little run (from 1995), next, may be a very dark river:

Correct - definitely in the interesting section of the guidebook, some lovely drops, some not so - only half the river goes underground, you can paddle back out of the overhang.

Doh! In my defence I've never been to Linton Locks, but I did edit that guide in the last 18 months or so...
