Artle Beck: Crossgill to Caton

Grade 3/4
Length 5 km
Paddleable spate

in North West


Artle Beck starts with a bang - a cheeky drop immediately after the put-in. The river then makes its way into a steep sided gorge with more fun grade 3 rapids. Beware of trees throughout and a deer fence just above Gresgarth Hall. Just next to the hall is the biggest drop on the river - a large bowl shaped weir.

From Caton, head eastwards towards Brookhouse and turn left up the hill. Follow the road all the way to Crossgill, parking just over the far side of the bridge in a convenient bay, big enough to hold 3 or 4 cars.
