Upper Wear: put in at Wearhead

  • Description

    "The section of the River Wear from Wearhead to Stanhope is what paddlers mean by the Upper Wear. A waterfall just upstream from here is much harder than anything on this stretch of the river, and the most convenient place to put on is from the public footpath river right downstream of the main road bridge in Wearhead. In lower water, one can walk under the arch seen here, and put on a little further up to paddle under the river left arch (not visible in the picture). However, this is a good level, and if low enough to walk under the arch, there will be a few places lower down which are a bump and scrape." Photo by Andy Waddington, 2009.
