South East England & Channel Islands
Though geographically close the two areas covered in this guide are as different in character as it is possible to conceive.
The South East of England has a varied landscape of chalk cliffs, pebble beaches, vast expanses od sand, mudflats, and river estuaries. At one extreme the Tidal Thames runs through the densely populated City of London and at the other the deserted North Norfolk coast.
The Channel Islands are a small nulber of large islands and a vast number of islets and reefs. Here we are talking pink granite, white sandy beaches and very strong tidal streams.
Many of the route are very committing but there are also a good number of gentler paddles.
