Wenning: Clapham to Hornby

Length 21 km
Current Level high @1.47 24 minutes ago

in North West · Yorkshire


A pleasant grade 2 touring paddle, dotted with lots of weirs and a notable playwave.

Water Levels

Heavy rain needed as much of the water is absorbed by limestone caves and the small reservoir above Clapham. The EA gauge at Wennington needs to be >0.8m for the wave to be working, is best around 1.2m but turns into a manky hole by about 1.5m
