Code of Conduct
  • The Code of Conduct is intended to help people enjoy the river, without reducing the enjoyment of others or damaging the environment. Canoeists are asked to follow the relevant sections of the code below, which are supported by all the main user groups.
  • General Guidance
  • Try at all times to be courteous to other river users.
    • Look after the environment and avoid damaging the banks and bankside vegetation.
    • Do not disturb birds and other wildlife you find along the river. Keep clear of nesting birds, areas important for breeding fish and salient otter sites.
    • Never throw rubbish into the river or leave it in on the banks.
    • Please be as quiet as possible. Do not spoil the enjoyment of others.
    • Hail to draw a person's attention to a situation which might result in inconvenience, damage or collision. Treat a hail as a friendly warning and not as an insult.
    • Observe the Country Code having regard for others property.
  • Guidance for Canoeists
    • Look out for all anglers. Whilst assuring your own safety keep a good distance from them and avoid their lines. Pass by quickly and quietly, creating as little disturbance as possible and do not loiter in fishing pools.
    • Keep well clear of wading anglers or anglers in boats and leave enough room in front and behind for them to cast.
    • Comply with any signals anglers make to indicate whether they wish you to pass by or to wait a moment. Hail if you think your approach has not been noticed.
    • Do not sit on fast flowing water and remain stationary if there are anglers fishing nearby.
    • Except in an emergency, launch or land only at recognised access places.
    • Keep clear of gravel shoals and islands during the spring when birds may be nesting.
    • Do not get in the way of other craft by suddenly changing course. Remember that larger boats are less maneuverable and cannot use such shallow water as canoes.
    • Keep clear of rowing craft and rafts, particularly when they are racing or serious coaching is taking place. Remember that it is sometimes difficult for others to see canoes.
    • Salmon and trout lay their eggs in gravel. During the period October to April inclusive, trampling and launching canoes on gravels used by salmon may damage unhatched eggs and young fry. Salmon stocks are now a scarce resource .
    • Avoid trampling and launching/landing on or near sensitive otter sites..
  • Safety on the River
    • Wear a buoyancy aid or life jacket at all times
    • Be aware of the uprights of bridges,and stay well clear of them, paddle with a safe distance between you and the next canoe.
    • Inspect rapids before "shooting" them.
    • Make sure that you can swim at least 50 meters in a Buoyancy Aid and the type of clothing you will be wearing.
    • Make sure that your canoe has built-in buoyancy or has inflated bags inside to prevent it sinking if you capsize.
    • If you wear glasses, tie them with a piece of string round the back of your head in case of capsize.
    • Do not drink alcohol and canoe,its not safe.( please be sensible and use moderation)
    • Help somebody who is in difficulty in the water or has capsized as long as you don’t endanger your self..
    • Give first aid and call the centre for help ASAP on 01600890129 or 01594833238.
    • Try to Revive somebody who is unconscious.
    • The warmest and quickest way back to the canoe centre is to paddle your canoe briskly,and don’t sit around waiting for assistance and get even colder.We may take several hours to get to you if we can !! Be aware of the risks involved,if in doubt please ask.
