Leisure Activities

The Restoration work being under-taken will help encourage leisure pursuits along the river to aid well-being. At various times of the year all of these pursuits are near impossible because of neglect, both along the footpath and in the river. Walking, Fishing, Boating, Geocaching, Cycling and Swimming will all be improved with restoration.
