As you head south on Coniston and pass Peel Island you will arrive at Nibthwaite. From here the River Crake continues to flow and further 8km south and onto where is enters the sea at Greenodd. In Swallows and Amazons this is also the real location of the River Amazon and Octopus Lagoon. It is easy to explore in a canoe or small boat.
The link below will take you further and show the course of the river to Allan Tarn. It might be possible to complete this trip in a Dabber when the level of the lake is high but not recommend in a larger boat. Judge for yourself.
The Winkle Brigg is owned by another club member, it has all the style and design of a much larger boat but is produced in a smaller package.
