De Lank: Delford Bridge to Tregaddick

Grade 5
Length 5 km
Paddleable high to spate

in Cornwall ยท South West


Masochistic. Mellow for the first 1.5km, then suddenly drops steeply through quarry workings. Watch out for the river disappearing underground: carry up river right past the quarry buildings to where it re-surfaces. This happens again later. Once you reach the footbridge (an alternative putin) you've braved the worst, and the river eases to grade 4.
