Thread: River Ure Below Slenningford

  1. Default River Ure Below Slenningford

    Hi folks

    Last minute change of plan due to windy conditions in the lake district, but does anybody know the access agreement below Slenningford. We would then get out on BCU land in Ripon and the next day carry on down to york.

    Any help much appreciated

    I don't know!

    But having paddled that and other places where paddlers may not get warm welcome, I've always paddled such sections by getting up at dawn, or soon after and paddling then, stopping for a breakfast after I'm out of any problem areas.

    I believe you can paddle it ( I have) but in theory you are not allowed to land on the banks at any point.
    we stopped on a gravel bank mid river and hoped to be challenged but it never happend.

    Pretty sure it's in the North of England canoe trips book so would have well established credentials

    Ran it a couple of months ago no problems. Access officer is Ken Harrop. May be a bit scrapey this time of year though.

    Thanks folks, paddled it yesterday. Lovely little paddle down to the canal and then back up to Ripon. The rain friday night meant no bumps and scrapes.

    Thanks for all advice

    Hello,
    I know this post is pretty old now but I am trying to find some info about the trip from Ripon to York and saw your post about the North England canoe trips book. I have searched for it on the web but nothing comes up. This is the first canoe trip I have planned myself and would really appreciate if you could please tell me where you bought the book or if you know of another that has a good description of this particular adventure?

    Hi, 'Yorkshire Rivers' is an informative guide and I believe is available online. I know the section from Hackfalls to Sleningford really well. The stretch to Ripon I've only paddled once, but from the BCU field to Boroughbridge many times. It's all flat water after Ripon racecourse.

  9. Cool Thank you

    There's also a lot of information (in general, though not a lot on the Ure) on UK Rivers Guidebook:

    https://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/...nfield-to-ouse

    The site also has a Forum (similar to this but covering all small craft propelled by paddles)
