Stone to Cromwell weir
Not forgetting Dunham Toll Bridge
It is possible to canoe from Trentham, but innumerable small weirs, low pipe bridges and barbed wire make it hardly worth the trouble above Stone. Most canoeists content themselves with the 107 miles described here, from Stone to the tidal limit at Cromwell weir.
I've divided the river into five sections to speed uploading for those withoutCanoeing the River Trent broadband.
The Trent and Mersey canal provides many opportunities for circular tours on the upper section.
The Trent is not a clean river and much of it runs through industrial landscapes. Nevertheless it is one of the great rivers of England, it provides excellent touring and deserves to be canoed more. The water quality has improved steadily over the last 50 years.
