Lower Wharfe paddle, 14th Oct

The plan for this Sunday 14th Oct is to paddle the lower section of the River Wharfe from Burnsall/Hebden to Barden Tower. This is a mainly grade 2 section with a small stretch of 3 at Appletreewick (which can be walked around) and is suitable for most when the river is at reasonable levels. The plan is to meet at 9:30am at Barden Bridge in the lay-by on the far side of the river. Go past the Tower car park and take the next right down the hill and follow the road over the bridge.

It is IMPORTANT that people let me know that they plan on attending so we can collate names and organise enough competent people for safety and leadership on the river. Additionally, if the trip is cancelled or moved due to water levels, you’ll save yourself a lot of time and trouble.

Closest water level gauge (level should ideally be below 0.4m for a steady beginners paddle)

Note that this trip is only open to WYCC members. You will also need to take your own gear or transport club gear yourselves.

Please confirm your attendance via email before 10pm Fri 12th Oct to tonythompson@pobox.com or post a reply on this page.
