River Irwell – by John Allerton

  • by

Great level today turned out a great paddle also. Get on from the corner of Kay Street in Summerseat, across the car park on the right and go through the gap turn left. See pin.

Would be ok from 0.40m easy to 0.70m at a push maybe 0.8m advanced paddlers – trees down by weir and also the weir was too sticky anywhere except steps at 0.54m

This level is still high for beginners – would be best 0.45m for as trip – got on at Summerseat and ran the broken weir and some did the Burrs Weir via the steps, Nick Andy & Oscar.

No issues 1 x roll well done Nick.

Some additional pics from River Irwell paddle 30/12/2023. Many thanks to John Allerton for organising. Great time on what would otherwise been a fairly dismal day.
