Hi folks, Wigan Canoe Group ran this at low level 0.47 aprox on Tuesday 27th Dec 16.
Scenic and easy at this level, a couple of grade 2 rapids with shorts bits of grade 3 at
Appletreewick. A couple of scrapey bits just before Barden Bridge, otherwise Very enjoyable. Steve Hitchen W.C.G.

That SE168553 is Blubberhouses not Linton.

Furthermore, remembering walking down the river from pedestrian bridge, WITH the idea of boating in mind, I remember bushy thorny nearly vertical 20ft descent bank, fenced off with a razor wire.

The 'no through' road in the village opposite has NO room for parking. It is not 'no through', it is 'dead end' or 'cul de sac' but it is not no through. No through is something you can go through if you wish but it is access only.

You are giving a large amount of very very wrong and misleading information.

Thank for the comments. Grid ref is clearly wrong and has now been amended to the approximate correct location and added a warning that the access description may be out of date.

This is a community site and depends on contributions; if you know a better description please post it.

The red line suggested in guide with wild goose chase in a no parking zone or paid parking and blue line free parking with direct access to water, seen it myself. Grassy but accessible.

Thanks for the photo. Location of public car park clarified in Guide. Does your suggested blue route go through the churchyard? Looking at the map, an alternative which is definitely legal would be take the public footpath down the side of the churchyard to the stepping stones.

"No Through Road" means (and has always meant) "You cannot use this road to get through to anywhere". It's the same thing as a cul-de-sac. I'm not sure why there are two different terms and signs, but it's always been the case.

I don't know what the guide said before it was amended, but from the description here, the term "no through road" doesn't sound wrong or misleading.
