    Hi Shaun,

    You could try the Chestefield Canal or Sheffield and Tinsley Canal, South Yorkshire Navigation or the Fosdyke Navigation towards Lincoln.

    The River Don is not to bad - looked at it a couple of weeks ago, however it was a bit on the low side. Nice to paddle out towards Doncaster, much cleaner than it used to be.

    River Idle (North Notts to the Trent).

    If you want some moving water - try the Derwent Darley Abbey to Matlock bath, get out at the Slalom Course.

    See you on the water may be ( I based in Kiveton Park).
