Melverley to Montford Bridge

10 miles - 4 hours (plus pub lunch time)

Setting out from the historic Melverley rail bridge near the Welsh border, you head downstream through the stunning English countryside in the Shropshire flood plains under the shadow of the Breidden hills.


This route is suitable for beginners with a couple of gentle yet easy to navigate faster-flowing sections mixed with islands and stream inlets to keep the route exciting. The lunch stop is at the fantastic Royal Hill Inn near Edgerley.


You will be paddling with the current downstream into Montford Bridge, where your vehicle is parked.


£25 per adult / under-16s £12.50


Launch time: 10:30am
