The Avon is a great river to dip a paddle into, whether by kayak, canoe or paddleboard. If you are seeking an expedition journey, wanting to just splash about getting wet, or anything in-between, there is something for you here.
The riverine wildlife and scenery are always attractive, and at times truly stunning. In the half-century since the Avon was restored as a navigation, the deep channelled waters and the numerous locks, with their white-water interludes, have greened over into precious habitats for a range of flora and fauna.
The river flows right through England’s past of climactic battles, monasteries, castles, stately homes and the early industry of mills and navigation. The Avon’s international fame is, of course, due to its associations with William Shakespeare, and it’s impossible for paddlers not to get sucked into a little ‘bardolatry’ whilst enjoying the river.
This book aims to guide paddlers along the Avon and through its many locks and weirs, while also highlighting the river’s remarkable natural and historical surrounds.
