Easy River trip


Event details

Monday 16:10 update,

River Eamont from Pooley Bridge to Brougham Bridge. 11km grade I/II with a few weirs. The River is towards the lower end of low but I am hopeful that the level will hold and we will not have to scrape.

Meet at the finish at 10:00 http://streetmap.co.uk/map?X=353661&Y=529231&A=Y&Z=120

For those travelling North there is an option to meet at junction 36 to share lifts Sten and Mike Chadwick are meeting at 09:00 at the canal side just off the A65 between Junction 36 and the Crooklands Hotel. http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map?X=354032&Y=483317&A=Y&Z=120&ax=353897&ay=482562

The car park at Pooley Bridge is pay and display but I hope that if we can keep the cars going to the start to a minimum we will be able to park on the street in the village.

Bring a flask and a sandwich the forecast is good so we might stop for a brew.
