It’s a beautiful spot to paddle as the seasons change, with tree lined banks turning a whole host of colours through the seasons.
The original river has been straightened in places to make the navigation easier for larger boats. This meant the original line became a quieter backwater with wildlife thriving there.
Lakes scatter the route also where there is mining subsidence. Salty water within these lakes means they are now home to an array of coastal plants and wildlife.
The River Weaver is a great place for spotting some sea-fairing birds! The rest of the river is a pretty paddle, flowing through ancient woodlands untouched by humans.
There are several slipways along the route should you wish the paddle here. These have been installed with the help of the Canal & River Trust and are ideal for launching paddle crafts.
