Went to check this out today. Plenty ofwater on .41 on ea gauge but only 1 drop clear of trees, most of which are v large & ging no where.
Not really worth doing in my opinion in present state.

Ahhh that's not so good Woodsy :-/

The park rangers are keen to keep the river 'natural' so I don;t think they'd be happy with a chain saw massacre session. Maybe a late night mission under the moonlight?

It's a good little section on the door step to keep the mind set of the steeper stuff fresh-ish though wouldn't you agree?

My mission for (early) next year,
Have a word (professionally as someone working in the Open Spaces sector in the NW) with the relevant wardens and bosses re making all open spaces a recreational opportunity for all sectors of the community! And then blissfuly swim down the bugger whilst watching me kayak happily make its way unencumbered without a stupid paddler in it!!!! Rick have you any names (or descriptions) of said wardens to kick off the 'dialogue'?
Watch this space.
Thanks,
Mark.

If it was tree free it would certainly be a useful local run.
Always worth broaching the subject with the relevant men in suits.
