The mighty River Salwarpe

Flowing through the Salwarpe canyon some 20 feet down. Thank goodness there was a good stone wall to keep me safe. No boats were risking tackling the raging torrent we see here

Rivals Frank Nellie's shot of Grand Canyon, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Anything them Yankies can do.....

Lol at Chris! I see a very handsome river, rivulet, runlet, the English language has 1000 words to describe the water.
Bill Phillips: The Salwarpe is only about 15 miles long and joins the river Severn
Great photo and a great song to accompany it, funny though your post is Bill.
Bill Phillips: I am delighted you approve

I am so glad you made it back alive from this dangerous spot... phewww.
Louis Armstrong....I think I heard this song a 1000 times, my dad had the original album.
Bill Phillips: Your dad was clearly a man of great taste Lady P
Glad you made it home safe and sound after taking this epic shot,did you wear a life jacket while standing on the bridge and a safety harness.
Bill Phillips: Naturally, I am no daredevil like Frank
Un petit chemin qui doit être bien agréable pour se promener
Bill Phillips: It is a very nice place for a walk indeed Martine
Quite the river... I don't think we would call this a river.
Bill Phillips: It is a tributary of the River Severn which is the longest river in the UK at 220 miles
That's rather a nice place to walk isn't it.
Bill Phillips: very pleasant Brian
If you don't come down to Newquay and buy me a breakfast you will be joining the river Severn.
Bill Phillips: I am of to the Watercress line tomorrow so you will have to wait
Looks as though you'd be lucky to get a row boat in there!
Bill Phillips: You are not impressed then Tom? grin

I can just imagine the horror that the early explorers had when they first discovered these raging, turbulent waters. It is amazing that local tribes were established despite the risk of having their homesteads washed away.
Bill Phillips: The people of Salwarpe are stoic in the face of adversity
