Rivers
Canoeing and Kayaking on : Hinksey Stream

Paddle Point
Oxford, UK

Shallow ford. Plenty of street parking, no problems accessing the field from the road.

Very shallow stretches in the summer - be prepared to wade!

Just did this loop. The Hinksey stream portion is choked with nettles, bulrushes, fallen trees and is VERY hard work. Only for the most determined. It is possible, but only just. Obviously the council is not counting on this stream for flood relief.
We (Thames & SE group of the Canoe-camping club) did this loop starting from the Riverside Centre and finishing back up the Thames on 19/10/14.

Equipped with Saws and axes, we cleared several blockages.


Thank you! That must have been a ton of work. Heroes!
