First Friday evening paddle of the Summer – Sowerby Bridge, Fri 5th July, 18:30+

Batley Baths pool sessions have now finished for the Summer so over the the next two months, we plan to run regular paddle sessions on local rivers. Many of these paddles are suitable for the newer paddlers and are a good intro to moving water.

The first of these is at Sowerby Bridge on Friday 5th July, meet at 18:30 onwards. If you arrive late, no worries as we won’t have gone far.

For Sowerby Bridge, you need to have had some experience of paddling on moving water – it is a grade 2 section of river with some grade 3 rapids that we spend our time playing on, all in the space of a few 100m. It is also a good opportunity to come see what the fuss is about (and watch us practicing our rolls 🙂 ) if you don’t fancy taking part.

Directions to the car park are as follows:-

Approaching Sowerby Bridge from the Halifax side, drop down through Sowerby Bridge, cross over the bridge spanning the river and take an immediate right before you go under the railway bridge and before the pedestrian crossing. The car park is at the side of the river, approx 25m from the main road.

Hopefully see some of you there.

PS Bring money as we tend to visit the pub afterwards 🙂
