River Weaver Midweek Paddle

River Weaver Midweek Paddle

A midweek paddle saw seven meet at the Leigh Arms to paddle the River Weaver.

LCC members Irene Jackson, Dave Allinson, julie Brookes, John Fay and Bob Hamilton were joined by Ste and Julie Fay to paddle the quiet stretch of the River Weaver.

A nice leisurely pace took us to the loch at which point we headed right into the narrower and overgrown branch. Dave described the section as “magical” whilst Julie said it “was like going through the Everglades.”

The paddle from the Leigh Arms to the Weir before the Anderton Boat lift and back was recorded reliably as 9.6 miles on Bobs Garmin 64s GPS.

Back at the Leigh Arms the small group enjoyed nice cool drinks whilst little birds feasted on Dave’s crisps and Julie’s sausage rolls.

Another great day.
