Just a warning to people wanting to paddle this. Do NOT paddle through the last bridge that looks like a fun shallow waterslide. It's the (main) road bridge at the bottom of the run. Get out before. What isn't visible from the road or upstream of the bridge is the presence of a 5 bar gate across the stream bolted onto the downstream side of the bridge. Sliding down the channel on your arse grabbing your kit and bricks in the wall hurts...

Video of the 6m fall in low water. The rest of the river is runnable at this level, but on the low side.

The landing of the fall is 8 foot deep or less, judged by a nice swim in the summer when we went exploring.
