Walkham: Merrivale Bridge to Huckworthy Bridge

Grade 4/5
Length 4.5 km
Paddleable high to spate

in Cornwall · Dartmoor · South West · other sections on Walkham


Relentless choss with it's fair share of branches thrown in to make sure it stays exciting. The first 500m is particularly tree ridden and it might be worth walking round.

Water Levels

Lots and lots of water needed for this section to run. It runs off super quickly too. Too much and it gets terrifying.

Getting There

Putin W4°2'55" N50°33'26"
Takeout W4°4'23" N50°30'58"

At Merrivale there is a small bridge just upstream of the main road with good parking. The takeout has far less parking, so best to leave one car here and the rest at the top.
