Thanks - now fixed. Most broken links will be caused by a missing "neengland/" in the url after Mark did his site tidy-up. Please let me know if you spot any more!

So, anyone run any of the above list?! PM about a guide if you have. Doesn't have to be a massive essay, but would be nice to have something up about all paddleable NE rivers!

Add to the missing list:

Swale: Richmond to Catterick. The Easby Abbey section used to be a slalom site so I presume there is some white here. I was hoping to read about it :-(

Tees: Winston to Piercebridge. An easy beginners' section. I'll write it up.

Greta: Stainmore to Bowes - very much a spate run apart from Mill Force
Greta: Bowes to Rutherford bridge - treated in one sentence in the existing guide and actually quite nice, but nothing very memorable to write about ... I'll have a go.

and not missing but

South Tyne: Alston to Slaggyford. Do you really classify this as Intermediate/Advanced ? Its easier than the Upper Wear which is in Easy/Touring.

From the missing list:

River Bain - see your email Jim :-)

Upper Wear (wearhead to eastgate) is in intermediate/advanced. Generally anything which is mainly grade 2 or less (with the odd bit of 3 maybe) goes in easy and anything up to 4+ in intermediate/advanced, but it's pretty subjective. The only bit I did move was the Tees from Low Force to Newbiggin, which got a promotion!

I've heard mention that Cragg Brook, running into the Calder at Mytholmroyd has some interest. Similar in character to Hebden water but a bit harder. I have not run it however and suspect it is dependant on loads of rain (LOADS of rain). There is plenty of gradient there and I think it was ElPres that mentioned it on these boards at least.


Neill

Edit: Also is there anyrthing on the Colne, running from Saddleworth direction down to the calder below huddersfield
Sometimes it's just too much effor......aughhh

Jim, is it possible to have a link to this thread from the top of the river lists page ? SOmething
along the lines of "don't see the river ylou want here ? Check the list of missing rivers in
this thread where some details may be posted, even if a full description is not yet written".

Reccied Barney Beck today - not enough water to paddle it :-) I can confirm that there are
no significant drops, access on foot is hard work in places (I was on river right - a better
path is on river left in the top half). There are half a dozen fallen trees, the majority of
them not sneakable and would take a long time to saw through. About halfway down there's
a pigwire fence right across the stream, topped by no less than four strands of barbed wire,
and it's at a point where the valley sides are very steep - this would be a difficult obstacle to
pass. I have a lot of photos. There's one awkward little strid which currently has a small
tree upright right in the middle. I think there must be a rootball at the bottom, since I could
not quite get the thing to pull out, but with a throwline, firmer footing and two or three people,
that one would shift fairly readily, I think. Apart from the trees and the fences, it is steepish,
few eddies, but doesn't look desperately hard...

Ah, just looked closely at one of those photos:- not far below the confluence of Old Gang Beck
and Bleaberry Gill, and just as Barney Beck enters the woodland, there is a bridge - I hadn't
noticed this afternoon, but the photo clearly shows a livestock fence under it. Doesn't look
sneakable unless someone can stand and pull one half or the other up.

Barney Beck - lots of trees, fences, nothing hard and only goes in massive spate? Sounds ideal(!)

Good idea on the link from the river lists, I'll get onto it...

Edit: Now added at the bottom of the page.

I've updated all the guides so they now have grid refs and multimap links on. If I've missed anything then please let me know.

If anyone fancies writing a guide for any of the missing rivers please send it in!

As I was driving around Swaledale a few weeks ago I noticed a couple of tribs not on my list which I thought may have potential.

The first was Startindale Gill. The Put-In would be from the road at NY885045, there was a small fall immediately after this, but the main issue would be Currack Force before the trib reaches the Swale - I'm guessing this would be unrunnable.

The second one was Straw Beck which runs through Muker. From what I could see there were a few slides and drops on this little ditch before it joined the Swale.

The Swale itself was at a good medium level, but both of these tribs would have needed a little more water to comfortably float on.

So has anyone attempted them?

Our club does Hebden Bridge to (beyond) Sowerby Bridge some times... did it last weekend. Can write up our notes on the various weirs etc in to guide format if you like? Also, not this region, but could do Derbyshire Derwent from Darley Abbey downwards, and some bits of the Trent that aren't on this site?

That'll be great if you could - pm it to me and I'll stick it up.
For the Trent, I think peakfreak is doing the midlands, so pm him, or failing that Mark R.

A number of the above "missing" list now feature in the new edition of English White Water. Which I had the priviledge to edit and complie for the northern sections - it has a massively expanded North East Section compared to the original edition (~100 sections, compared to ~60 in the original).

Where these are new guides sent to me for use in the 2nd edition that don't already appear on UKRGB, I'll check with the authors and then add UKRGB versions of them to the site in due course. Examples include Cray Gill, How Stean Beck, Gayle Beck, etc....

Jim,
I paddled the River Nidd from Goldsborough to the A59 at the weekend, I would be happy to contribute my findings. Should I post them here?
