Are you interested in a really leisurely, scenic, tranquil paddle through beautiful countryside with a chance to visit the remains of a canal-side 12th century castle ........

Then this is the trip for you ...... BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY 27th AUGUST 2018  

Only about a 75 minute drive from Croydon, along the M25 and M3, we'll be paddling from Winchfield Hurst in Hampshire, to Odiham Castle,                                      a distance of circa 4.5 - 5.0 miles, so nice and easy !

It's on the Basingstoke Canal but it’s a very beautiful stretch,  heading for the end of the navigable Canal so not much traffic, maybe the odd canal-boat, ducks and families of swans etc.

The canal winds through some beautiful Hampshire countryside, really green, lots of trees and colourful flowers. This part of the canal is fed from underground streams that emerge from the nearby Greywell Tunnel and as such the water in many parts is Crystal clear, you can easily see the bottom and all the water plants as you paddle along.                                 

 At the end of the trip we'll egress right beside the beautiful and well preserved remains of 12th century Odiham Castle. You can walk through the Castle's remains and there are boards telling you about some of the history.   It's then just a 5 minute drive to the beautiful  Mill House Inn, a Grade 2 listed Watermill with extensive gardens lining the banks of the swirling Mill Pond, a couple of drinks in the sun, what a way to finish a lovely day out in the countryside !

Drinking & Eating around the World …                 Why not join us at The White Bear, near New Addington, a lovely country Pub, outdoor lunch & drinks,            watch as The Red Arrows and other historic aircraft perform flypasts to nearby Biggin Hill’s                 “Festival of Flight…100yrs of the RAF”.

A lovely and different way to enjoy Sunday lunch and drinks in the Summer.

The aircraft, particularly the likes of The Red Arrows normally loop around the White Bear Pub but no guarantee of what aircraft you will see, this very much depends on display patterns, weather, wind and cloud levels !

We’ll start of beside Sonning Bridge in Berkshire, on one of the more picturesque sections of the River Thames.        We’ll paddle downstream, being carried along by the flow for about 1.5miles until we reach St Patrick’s Stream.  We’ll then branch off along St Patricks  stream, a narrow quite fast moving stream which twists and turns through the verdant green overhanging vegetation.  Eventually we’ll join the end of The River Loddon which is lined with millionaires houses and ultimately drops us back into the Thames for the final short leg to Wargrave.                                           Dependant on how people are getting on, we’ll probably end the trip here but maybe we’ll continue, still downstream along the River Thames and then round the island and paddle back up the Hennerton backwater, some 2kms to the Riverside Pub at Wargrave. The Hennerton is a sleepy narrow backwater lined with millionaires houses and gardens.  So effectively covering three of four different waterways all downstream, flowing with the current, except for the final 2km up the placid & quaint Hennerton stream.

Get on near Chertsey, paddle along the Thames and then head off into the “jungle wilderness” a tiny little stream meandering through the Woods, maybe bashing through the Jungle then two hours later we arrive at Chertsey Weir, where a few may wish to exhibit their skills riding the pour-over whilst others maybe watch and admire ?

We’re returning for another leisurely paddle over a beautiful stretch of the River Loddon, in Berkshire

finishing up with a short distance on the majestic River Thames paddling from Winnersh to Wargrave.

About seven miles but there is usually a constant flow which carries us along nicely and the entire trip will be flowing WITH the current. 

The Loddon is a meandering and twisty river, quite narrow in parts, maybe a few fallen trees to dodge around or under, always fun !,

also a nice sloping sluice weir to shoot, maybe a big wave to crash through and then time to play on the wave afterwards.

Last time we did this trip we saw quite a wide variety of wildlife along the river banks.

A mix of secluded countryside and then in the final couple of miles view the millionaires houses that line the attractive riverbanks.

 As always, we’ll stop for a riverside picnic lunch and then finish off at a Riverside Pub, sit back, in the sun, watching the river life float by

The following write up from the "Pub Paddles Book" describes this particular trip,

including saying …..    "a surprisingly clean, swift flowing stream which makes a fine little adventurous expedition"

There will be a fleet of demo boats for people to try, including SUPs (Stand Up Paddle Boards) Canoes and Kayaks as well  as maybe trying your hand at some Archery.

Can I suggest that you email Mike with your intentions, what sessions you intend to join in with ? will you camp overnight ?Will you cook on the Barbie unit or prefer an early (pre film) Dinner in the Pub ? please also sign up on the CAP website …In say ten days time I will then circularise everyone who’s registered with me, I’ll let you all know what the other CAP members are planning and then we can all make our final call as to whether or not we attend and also for which events.Don’t overly want people randomly booking  events and then finding no one else is joining them and they’re all on their lonesome !

We’re going to paddle the River Wey, accessing the river close to Newark Priory, at Ripley, off the A3 near Guildford and then doing a circular trip of about five miles.  Initially we’ll follow the fairly straight line of upstream on the Wey Navigation but then we’ll fork off onto  the old river and come to a site, in the middle of nowhere, that used to be an old deserted printing works but has now been rebuilt as a large luxury apartment complex with the river literally running underneath it !.

We’ll have two options here, hopefully portaging around it, which is what we did last time,  may have to bash our way through the undergrowth and carry the boats a little way,  a CAP jungle exploration J and then, unless things have changed, there’s a nice little pour-over for you to try and play on. We’ll check the portage before everyone does it and if access to the river has been sealed off we can just continue around a smaller loop although then missing some of the Old Woking area)!

After the apartment the current is quite swift and we’ll be swept nicely along a very bendy stretch of beautiful river, passing Old Woking and a pretty riverside Norman Church. We’ll end up back at Newark Priory, so a round trip paddle, no need for any car shuttles.          

As always, of course, we’ll stop in the local Inn for a sociable drink or two before the quick drive back up the A3.
