We are a group of ordinary canoeists who have formed a company limited by guarantee to gain recognition that there is, and always has been, a public right of navigation on our rivers.
We are not Judges or Parliament so we cannot "tell" you what the true situation is. But we can show you the evidence of history, including what Parliament and Judges have said in the past.
We also give others, if they can, the opportunity to explain the errors in our key assertions. We believe if you look at this evidence it will lead you to the inescapable conclusion that there is, and always has been, a Public Right of Navigation on all rivers in England & Wales, subject only to the physical constraints of the river and the size/nature of the craft using them.
We have no commercial interest in the successful resolution of this issue.
Our objective is simply that canoeists, swimmers and others should be able to enjoy the pleasures of our rivers through river access - for all.
