Exe: Bridgetown to Bolham Weir

Grade 2
Length 26 km
Paddleable low to spate

in Exmoor · South West · other sections on Exe


A good introduction to whitewater for beginners or as a touring run: lots of small natural rapids and a few weirs. Bolham weir at the takeout is nasty: portage around on river right and then paddle across the river downstream of the weir to takeout by the road on river left.
