Yesterday I went out for a trip on the Severn with Dave and Alan from SoTP. Was good fun 🙂
Our put in point was at Hampton Lode, there used to be a ferry over the river there until last year when it was washed away in the same rains that did for the SVR 🙁 Our take out point was at Arley which is approx 4.7 miles down river.
The river was a little, erm, frisky 🙂 It was estimated that it was about 8 feet higher than normal and there was a lot of debris in the river. Dave estimated that last time he did this trip it took him about 3 hours ish. Due to the strong current we flew down it in about 1.5 hours 🙂
Damn good fun 🙂 Landed at Arley for a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich in the tea rooms 🙂
One thing that puzzled me with the bacon sandwich was that for some reason it was served with a small stack (about 5) plain pringles. This did baffle me somewhat but at least it was not grated carrot 🙂
