Half day canoe hire

This section of the river is all about the peace and tranquility of paddling the beautiful River Severn. The route meanders between the Royal Hill Pub and Montford Bridge via a series of gentle faster flowing sections that are great fun and easily passable.

Much of the river bank along this stretch is SSSI protected as it is full of rare and wonderful wildlife. Our customers report seeing kingfishers, swans, herons and even plentiful otter sightings!
