Portage river right. Can be a bit scrambly when it's muddy. The dog track owners are canoe friendly but understandably don't encourage people to picnic or barbecue

Update Jan 2013 - the dog track has now closed. The owners lost the track surface in the November 2012 flooding

There is a staircase down from the canal, after 10m you are on the Avon. The Leam comes in 80m upstream.

Parking possible at Warwick Tesco car park but not sure how long. Downstream you can get towards Warwick Castle but they are itchy about you portaging unless the Annual Doggy Paddle is happening.

You can also put in by the railway bridge. It depends on the river level which is the easiest side to use. There ia a gate way but there is no gate and you can get a trolley through. During the coarse fishing season the banks can get busy with people fishing, especially on Sundays.

Good playspot for surfing but be carefull in high waters can get rententive. Park at the public car park over the bridge round an island and on your right. They are pay and display

This is the first step weir with fish slide on right looking back up the weir. The main shoot is closer to the sluce gate and a better route in low or medium water.

As the name suggests a rocky weir that gets used when the Stratford weir further upstream is too big.

Paddle Point

Nice easy canoe portage with canoe slide, room to stop for lunch on the concrete by the portage point.
