As you set off from the 18th century Llandrinio bridge, surrounded by WW2 history, you will encounter a small but enjoyable rapid, giving you a taste of what is to come in the first few miles. The river is narrow and gently meanders for the first section, with numerous trees to avoid and little rapids to navigate, until the confluence of the River Vrnwy joining the Severn just before Crew Green bridge, a converted WW2 railway bridge. You will have the option of stopping at the Royal Hill pub for lunch before heading off again towards Montford Bridge, your campsite for the night, convienently placed next to the Wingfield Arms pub.
Day 2 is a little longer, providing more of a challenge for your now-experienced crew. As you set off from camp, you will head downstream, past the confluence of the Perry and into Shrewsbury. You can either take a picnic with you or stop at one of the fantastic riverside pubs in Shrewsbury for lunch. Once in Shrewsbury, you will need to navigate the town weir (with the help of a Hire a Canoe Ltd team member) before you head on down towards Atcham. Camping or a B&B is available for this night's stopover. On your final day you have a nice and easy paddle down into Ironbridge Gorge through some stunning Shropshire countryside before being collected by us and returned to your car.
