Had a great day today on medium levels and fantastic sunshine. No other groups up there. Didn't pay for the canoe pass, but paid £2 for the car park at high force. 17 boaters from Nottingham smiling it was worth £2.

It's in the guide but worth highlighting .... We've had a few nasty swims below Horseshoe Fall, the small rather simple looking drop above Low Force. If you get the line right it's a breeze, get it wrong and it can be very retentive even at the low levels that have been keeping this section as an option in the very dry conditions we've had over the last several months.

Kingston Kayak Club have posted a couple of video on YouTube.
Using all those hours worth of footage, we've tried to make some useful River Guide videos. Very much a work in progress, but thought someone may find them useful.

This is the link to the High Force to Wynch Bridge video

Here at Kingston Kayak Club we've had a very polite contact from North Pennine Partnership regarding the Video River Guide we produced. We were totally unaware that a Code of Conduct had been drawn up for Low Force which details the usual things but also where to ingress and egress.

The location is a SSSI and obviously they want to protect the area, while providing us with access to the white water. The Low Force Code of Conduct

As paddlers we need to be getting out just below Low Force as indicated and if you do want to paddle Wynch Bridge rapid then we need to be getting out at Scoberry Bridge.

We have also amended our Video River Guide to reflect this information.
