Important Notice – Dangerous Obstruction on The Bann River

Update 1:

We would like to remind you of the dangerous obstruction on the River Bann, Scaffolding has been erected river wide just below the main road bridge in Gilford and just before you enter the Slalom site. If you plan to be paddling on the Bann, please find an alternative take out upstream of Gilford, as there is very fast flow upstream and downstream of the main road bridge leading directly into this Major Hazard. We are working with the contractor who has now put up signs on the river upstream and at the car park in Gilford to ward paddlers of the danger. We will keep you updated when the work is complete and all obstacles are removed.
