Canoeing and Kayaking on : River Kent

Paddle Point

There is a double strand of barbed wire across the river as you pass the golf club.

Whilst this is easy to get around in moderate water levels, it could be a real danger in faster and higher flows.

Apparently such strands appear quite often along this section, so please be aware of the possibility of it being in a different location up or downstream.
