River Swale at Lownethwaite
River Swale at Lownethwaite
Overnight rain had brought the Swale up considerably during the day making life difficult for some canoeists. At this level, the usual line through the furthest arch is bouncy, but the middle arch is usually easiest and the near arch perfectly possible, so paddlers have plenty of choices. In low levels, the middle arch is very shallow but unthreatening, whilst the furthest arch has most of the water, but is made awkward by big rocks. The gauge on Grinton Bridge (a ways upstream from here, where paddlers put in) was at three feet.
