Paddle Point
Winchester, Hampshire, UK

Small free carpark with easy water access. Beware height barrier if carrying many boats on the roof. From here, you can paddle south (downstream) to the sluicegates and upstream as far as the shallow bridge by the rowing boat house. Do not paddle upstream of this point.

A different perspective of Southampton. Most of the trip is urban but near Woodmill it seems almost rural in places.

Very shallow stretch of water. There is some faster moving water at Durngate (a short paddle south of this point). There is a propsed slalom course here.
Parking is available on Park Avenue.

From the roadside parking by the bridge at Shawford walk down the public footpath (to the right of the waterway. Place boat in water for put-in to avoid damaging the bank).
