Kayak Trip - Tonbridge



Venue: Barden Road, Tonbridge, Kent TN9 1UR

Why not join us and try a leisurely day's paddling on the river Medway at Tonbridge.

We use Wavesport Crossover kayaks which are ideal for adults. These are all fitted with drop down skegs making them easy to paddle in a straight line. 

The day is led by Grant Scamell, BCU Level 5 Coach. We will be paddling passed Tonbridge Castle and through the town to Tonbridge lock. Having portaged the lock, it's a nice gentle paddle paddle down to Eldridge's Lock. We will shoot the grade 1 canoe pass at Eldridge's and paddle down to Porter's Lock where we will shoot the grade 2 canoe pass (please see photo above).  Having paddled round the island, we will have lunch at Porter's lock before paddling back to Tonbridge in the afternoon. The total distance is six miles. 

Course cost 60
