GUIDE TO THE RIVER TWISS

NAME OF RIVER: Twiss.

WHERE IS IT?: Ingleton, just off the A65. Map.

PUT-INS/ TAKE-OUTS: Get off is the car park for the Ingleton Waterfall walk, just follow all the old biddies on a sunday and you can't miss it.

To put in either walk up the track with your boat or head right out of the carpark and right again at the first road up the hill. Stop when you come across the river on your right about 3 miles later. You might have to walk the first bit of the river.

APPROX LENGTH: 2 km.

TIME NEEDED: 2-4 hours.

ACCESS HASSLES: No idea, the old biddies on their sunday walk seem to find it amusing.

WATER LEVEL INDICATORS: Very low, if you can float your boat at the get in, the eddies above Thornton Force may be a little sketchy.

GRADING: Do you feel lucky?

MAJOR HAZARDS/ FALLS: Lots.

Thornton Force, big fall into shallow pool.

Near the end of the run the water disappears under rocks in parts.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Steep, loads of drops, of which about half go really nice, and some others which don't.

Pecca Falls...really sweet.

OTHER NOTES: I think the middle km drops some 100-150m. Likely to gather a large crowd on a nice day.

River Doe next door might also be a goer.
