Local River Advisors

Local river advisors are appointed by the BCU to monitor the access situation on rivers in the UK. LRAs will know the current situations about any access agreements on the rivers they are responsible for. Please contact the relevant LRA before attempting to paddle a river - if not we may lose the right to paddle sections of river.
