Over the recent August Bank Holiday weekend, a hardy group of seven men and a fourteen year old boy have paddled their canoes all the way from the Norwood Tunnel to the River Trent. This is a distance of 32 miles. They had to carry their canoes round 46 locks (not 25 as it says on their website).
It took them two days. They camped overnight at Welham. They were supported by the wives of three of the paddlers.
They completed this extraordinary feat in order to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind. One of the paddlers is blind.
