Are there any leisure kayakers on here (ie not extreme whitewater)? I used to live in Warrington and used the canals and the Weaver in Cheshire.

I've been on the Dee near Chester and the Mersey at Egremont Ferry a couple of times but it would be nice to know if there's anyone else local and where they go.

I want to take up kayaking properly again. I go to Fell foot Park when up in the lakes but that's about it...

Myself and MissyG have done it a few times as my sister and her partner are really in to (He owns Apache Canoes and builds Canoes from scratch).

We have been with them a few times - generally on Llangollen Canal, but they are talking about taking us up to the Mersey in Manchester next time.

Cheers guys. Found a nice launching spot midway between Caldy and West Kirby yesterday. Was able to park close to the beach so it was no effort to lug the kayak very far.

I was in a canoe once on the sea. I caught a fish and decided to cook it on an old primus stove. Unfortunately, the gentle lapping of the waves caused me to fall asleep. I must've knocked the primus stove over cos the canoe caught fire and sank. I almost drowned.
This proves the old adage that....YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR KAYAK AND HEAT IT!!
