An alternative start to the Upper Rawthey. A 2.5m fall, a 7m slide and a tight difficult gorge that's probably blocked with trees!

Water Levels

Needs high levels, but spate would be terminal

From Rawthey Bridge carry on upstream and take a small road on the right. After 1km, turn right again, and then park where the road forks. Walk the boats down the left fork to a bridge over Needlehouse Gill and choose where's best to put on above this. This would only be run if you intended carrying on down the Upper Rawthey.
