River Ribble levels

Post by chilealan » Wed Oct 03, 2018 7:32 pm

Hi Paddlers.

Is there anyone who can give me an update on paddleable levels for the Ribble, Clitheroe to Ribchester. I have not paddled it for about 10years and technology has changed so knowing which gauges to check and appropriate levels would save pointless journeys. Low and High would be good particularly as I would look to take some novices.

Yes, I know we no longer get out at the De Tabley Arms.

Thanks in Anticipation.

This being the UK Rivers Guidebook, there is a guide to the Ribble, see https://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/riv ... ribchester
This has some discussion of levels. I usually take the EA gauge at Jumbles Rock as a level indicator. Can't find a link immediately but the EA data is used by
