Product Description

Review

White Water Lake District is simply fantastic - the best quality UK paddling guide yet produced. -- Paddles Magazine, October 2003.

From the Publisher

A key feature of the book is the quality of the maps - each of 147 individual trip descriptions has an accompanying detailed sketch map on the facing page. Numerous drawings, photos, cartoons and drawings make for a book that is a joy to read.

well living in cumbria as i do and happening to kayak the lake district is a good a place as any to have on your doorstep but for the past few years allmost all of the rivers ive paddled with friends or clubs have been established or well known runs...that was untill a friend bought this guidebook and we had no idea how many more rivers lay unpaddled to all but a select few who knew the secrets. this has now all changed and when it has rained (which lets face it is hasnt done much this season)we've met up picked out a river and gone and done it unlike the past few years where we would have done either the greta, the upper derwent or if we could be bothered to get up early enough the kent or the duddon, but now were paddling a more and more varied range of rivers. this is an essential purchase for those who live in or visit cumbria even only for a couple of weekends a year

Anyone thinking of writing a guide to the lake district, Yorkshire or Lancashire should stop right now. This book will remain the definitive guide to these regions for many years. Apart from a cluttered index you could not criticise the content, thouroughly researched and well divided into regions there is sufficient information on all types and grades of river to inspire an exploration without taking away the joy of discovery on the river. It will hopefully make the days of seaking out rivers at the right level a thing of the past, but that may be too much to hope for.
Updates Haywood and Evans and so much more. You do need it in addition to the new English BCU guide.

Agree with everything that everyone else has said in their review, for white water there is none better, but alas my skills are not up to much in the book

As a novice open canoeist I actually bought this (and consider it good value) for the info on the Grade 1/2 rivers as well as all the lakes - it has all the things I was trying to find out but didn't know who to ask. The descriptions with route stars, scenery info and access agreements has been hugely useful for a novice who doesn't want to get into trouble for running down the river from Keswick to Portinscale after 4pm in summer, or going onto Bassenthwaite without the right permit

simply marvellous

Verified Purchase
Comprehensive, well organised, very readable and includes river maps. In my opinion, the best paddlesport guidebook produced since Chris Sladden's "The Welsh Rivers". It is no coincidence that both works are the result of single minded dedication on the part of the author.
If you're planning to paddle rivers in the Lake District and nearby areas, you will find this book a very useful resource and I expect it will encourage you to try a wider variety of rivers.

This book is exactly what it says, an excellent guide to White Water in the Lake District. I was particularly interested in the law section as my husband and I are Kayaking beginners.
