    Default Lower Usk

    Can anyone tell me if your allowed in this area now as over the last two weeks I’ve seen quite a few large groups putting in around Llanellen bridge area and going well beyond the town of Usk , be great to know as I got chased from this area a number of years ago after being told by an irate landowner/farmer that I shouldn’t be on the river , this was just before the agricultural college about a mile past the Chain Bridge Pub .

    Update , I bumped into two of the paddlers today who were having a break further down river at the Newbridge-on-Usk Inn it seems they’re a new group to the area and just took it on themselves to paddle the river , so far they’ve been doing it for nearly 3 months and haven’t been stopped or approached by anyone , I tried to explain to these fellas that they might get some stick but it was a case of so far we haven’t so so what , I’ve given them details of the site so far more knowledgable folks than me will be able to explain to them the understandings and rules regarding access

    Its true the Lower Usk has traditionally had access issues, however I regularly swim the section just upstream of the college and have never had an issue,
