My recent river walk attracted attention largely because I didn’t name the river! We know it has been done before, but considering it is the holiday season, let’s forget Covid, and let’s look at UK rivers and guess which/where they are.

First time round, we’ll give a few clues and a couple of harder pictures. Then we’ll give you a couple more pictures a day or two later that are easier. Finally, we’ll give you the answer, and a story perhaps, to complete the puzzle. We are hoping this sounds harder in theory than in practice and many, but not all, the rivers have featured in Gone Fishing episodes. So this is a good excuse to rewatch the videos if nothing else. Let’s get cracking with River One!

This river is seventy four miles long and its valley is associated with a cheese. There is a famous abbey on its banks, and the river would have been known to the original cast members of All Creatures Great and Small. Can you name the river AND the beat??

That must be some farm to be so famous, how many milk cows they got?

Any time I see a T&S cover I am reminded of my father, with whom I used to play 'guess the river' every month when it arrived...

You probably have the river right, now can you name the beat? Paul and Bob filmed there in Autumn 2018!
