    A day permit is needed and this can be obtained from the 'Bendrigg Trust' (01539-723766), just down the road. They will lend you key, which will get you into the launch site. Please close gate & lock gate after entering/leaving. It is best to ring in advance, to make sure there will be someone there on the day you wish to launch, in order to pay the fee, (cash only) & obtain the key.

    Killington can be windy at times. Also, the M6 overlooks it, so it can be noisy too. Either paddle on a calm day and put up with the road noise. Or paddle on a windy day, which lessens the noise but makes for a choppy ride.

    Interesting island with walls that disappear into the water.

    May the gentleness of morning, greet your silent passage through endless waters...

    May all your winds be gentle. And for ww - May it rain the night before.
