Rivers
Canoeing and Kayaking on : River Beult

Paddle Point

Starting on the Medway, this moderately adventurous trip passes 3 weirs, 2 of which require portage around with steep banks, and trying to avoid going through gardens.
Quite high water levels are needed to reach the final small weir on the Lesser Teise, and this would be a real jungle bash in summer.

Yalding Bridge


Lesser Teise in high water in winter.

Paddle Point

Limited parking on the bend in the road, and a footpath leading to the river and slightly overhung banks.
Paddling from here involves possible battles through trees and is probably best done in the fishing closed season.

Paddle Point

A long and adventurous trip down this small river. Involves tree blockages and weirs, some of which could be dangerous. In summer likely to be clogged with lillies and weed, so spring, during the fishing closed season, probably best.

Paddle Point

Impassable weighted sluice gate weir with very high vertical walls. Portage coming from above by getting out river left, crossing bridge and putting in below weir river right about 50m downstream.

Paddle Point

Awkward steeply sloping weir with fairly noticeable towback and aerated water.

Portage on river right through private looking woodlands.

Paddle Point

Small weir under the bridge which can allow a modest play session depending on levels. Easily run. Would be rocky in low water.

Went up the River Beult from the Medway and went up to this bridge which was as far as we could go as this water level. Good fun doing it and you will scrape the bottom a few times which is why perhaps not many try this route as you can see in the video showing the return. Regards Peter
