Silver Propeller Challenge



Visit Lowdwells on the Grand Western Canal by boat or canoe.

A photo of your boat or canoe at the end of the canal at Lowdwells will be a good proof of your visit. Visiting trailable and portable boats will need to obtain a permit from Devon County Council. British Canoeing membership does not cover the Grand Western Canal, so all canoeists also need to buy a permit, which are available at several local outlets, including Sampford Peverell Spar Shop. There is a slipway for trailable boats at Boehill, just outside Samford Peverell. Close to the end of the canal is Lowdwells Tunnel (which canoes are allowed through).

Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
