Event details

Not Official LCC Event

Social Paddle down the River Kent

We will stay flexible sensitive to the water levels and participants.

Staveley to Burneside - I thought it might be fun to continue the journey down the Kent from where we left off last time .

We have the option of running Cowan Bridge or the portage is very easy.

There are some weirs, usually most are OK but a couple are definite portages.
