Cricklade to Lechlade by canoe – “The infant Thames” – a post by Mal Grey on Song of the Paddle-April 10th. 2012

A Pictorial journey from Cricklade to Lechlade By Canoe.

On Sunday, my friend Nigel & I decided at the last minute to paddle from Cricklade down to Lechlade. The water levels looked at little low on the EA website, but we were prepared to walk if necessary!

Nige surprised me by turning up with his little used kk. I’d expected to be tandem, so it was nice to know I’d have a little more chance of getting over the shallow bits unscathed!
We put in at the bottom of Thames Lane in Cricklade, after a nice easy shuttle. A friendly local chap helpfully acted as a depth gauge for us.
