Local Rivers


 Baldock and District canoe Club organise placid water paddles as well as white water.


For those who don't want to paddle rivers running down the side of a mountain, we run trips to local rivers.


These are usually during the summer months, starting with a paddle on one of our local rivers for Easter.

The last of the season is usually our Halloween Paddle, from Hertford to Ware, dinner in the Saracens Head and back in the dark. An evening paddle, spooky, but with others, good fun.

For those who don't feel the cold there is often a Christmas paddle the week-end before the big day.


Other recent trips have been on the Thames at Wargrave. A figure of eight trip down towards Henley and up to Shiplake. Either or both sections could be paddled depending on experience and enthusiasm.

The River Cam, through the Backs of Cambridge. The River Wye and the Great Ouse.


We regularly paddle the rivers around the Hertford area. These are the Lee, Beane and Mimram. This is usually on a Saturday or Sunday. There are some weirs that can be played on to add to the fun.


Boats and kit can be borrowed from the club. Arrangements for kit should be made via the club secretary. Less experienced paddlers should stay with responsible guides/coaches. Minimum people on a trip together should be three.
