Rising in Llangynllo, Powys and flowing through the border town of Presteigne, the River Lugg is a popular river with paddlers.
With its many weirs, grade 1 white water sections, pretty bridges and river banks, it has something for every paddler.
From Presteigne, the river crosses the border into England. It then flows through Herefordshire, to the south of Leominster. Here it meets the River Arrow. From there it continues to flow towards the River Wye where it meets it at Mordiford.
Facts about the River Lugg
What’s particularly interesting about the Lugg is that is was officially made navigable under the River Wye and Lugg Navigation Act 1696. This means there is undisputed access on the stretch from Leominster. So, paddlers can enjoy their paddling and share the space as they paddle.
Paddle this river for lush green river banks, pretty Welsh and English countryside and a glimpse into the best wildlife the country has to offer.
