Halton Rapids

Halton Rapids is the final stretch of white water that the river Lune has to offer before flowing into the sea at Lancaster. There is over 500 metres of grade 3 water with playful holes and waves. Recently the BCU North West Region have made arrangements for car parking, toilets and showers close by.

I joined a few of the nice folk from Ribble Canoe Club for a couple of runs. We certainly made the best of the time stopping to play at almost every hole and wave. After we washed up below the rapids it was time for a quick brew before walking our kayaks back up to the top for another run.

Thanks to the Ribble Canoe Club folk for their company on the water and many thanks to Paula Sharples for the photographs.
