Can I paddle anywhere?
In the UK, you need a license to paddle in most of the waterways,
rivers, lakes, etc.
BCU membership (Canoe England, Canoe Wales, Scotland Canoe Association
and the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) includes a licence
to paddle on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.
Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are privately owned
or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand.
See Useful Web sites page.
In other countries, do check with your national kayak organisations
and waterway / off-shore agencies etc.

This should be of interest to you all. Please consider
signing the petition as an interested individual.
Currently if you'd like to enjoy English and Welsh waterways you're likely
to be accused of trespassing because the bed and banks of rivers and canals
are privately owned, unlike Scotland and the rest of the world. We
