Barle Trip Report

After some last minute arrangements I picked up Graham at just gone 6.30am and we headed down to Dulverton, some 130 miles south. It was about the same time last year that we did the Barle and the level then was very good, running a good grade III with bits of grade IV.

Since the Barle run this weekend (7th Feb) was my first kayak river outing with the club since joining late last year, I thought I’d take my turn to record the event from the eyes of a newcomer.

River Barle – Exmoor Sunday 7th Feb

This weekend’s trip is on the River Barle in the Exmore National Park.  The trip will be from Tarr Steps down to the Bridge Inn at Dulverton (about 6 miles).
It’s categorised as a grade 2 river with a few grade 3 bits that can be portaged but as it’s a 130 mile drive each way and it’s difficulty can vary depending on level then this is only suitable for people who are reasonably competent on water like Symonds Yat.
We will meet at The Bridge Inn at Dulverton (the finish) as we drive past this on the way to Tarr Steps. If we can meet at 9:30 and we then arrange the ferry from there.
Map below. Please allow about 2.5 hours for the journey (based on my driving speeds).

The Bridge Inn, Dulverton

Contact Clive or Graham by 12:00 Saturday at the latest to confirm if you are coming. If you leave it after that you will not be included in our travel/ ferry plans.
