In high water put-in at road bridge on Stonesdale Lane when driving towards Tan Hill. Also possible to put in from bridleway about 1km further down the valley with a short walk-in. Either take-out above Currack Force or carry on down the Swale where it merges just below Rainby Force (although easy to get out and run Rainby too).
