A lovely non tidal river with a launch from Middle Bridge on the A259, 2km East of Pevensey. Parking isn't great but it's doable if its not busy. Park on the bridge or just before. Launch on the North side with relatively easy access to the water. After paddling 2.5km you'll get to Horse Bridge and another 3km further on is Boreham Hill. The river stays pretty much the same width, approx 6-8m. You can paddle South too but will need to cross the busy main road as you can't paddle under Middle Bridge. There is Parking a 200m further east of the bridge on the south side. The only potential downside to the spot is fishermen. Parking will be difficult and ( I assume) they won't take kindly to paddleboards. Paddle at less busy times or avoid the fishing season all together. Pevensey Marsh is very exposed so winds can be an issue. Having said all that it's a really nice river to paddle on!

Nice paddle in the sunshine and took my Stylemaster as I didn't want to leave my bro behind on his Allwave! A little further to travel next time as the wind really picked up and was in our faces on the return journey. Still another 6 weeks of fishermen free paddling though before the few get all territorial and dish out abuse. Chill dudes!

First time on a local river. Plenty of them around when you start looking. It certainly calmed my paddling down and gave me time to soak up the tranquility
