"British White Water" is a canoeing guide which covers the classic white water rivers of England, Wales and Scotland.
Written in a lighthearted style, it fully describes the 100 best rivers with advice on how best to navigate their reaches. There are exciting new discoveries for many canoeists on the less well-known tributaries and smaller rivers of Britain, as well as information on the famous canoeing rivers such as the Averon, Etive and Orchy in Scotland, the Tyne, Greta and Dart in England, and the Dee, Conway and Wye in Wales.
Each detailed description begins with a six-line summary to enable instant assessment of the accessibility, difficulty, star-rating, necessary portages and map reference of each river. Over 1,000 kilometres of paddling are packed into 155 separate river trips and the book is well illustrated with 29 maps and 31 photographs.
