Accessible for local, portable and trailable craft
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).
