On Saturday 27th June sixteen heritage adventurers canoed from Hardington Mains farm to Wolfclyde Bridge. The canoe journey marked the launch of the Discovering the Clyde programme. The aim of the launch was to highlight how rivers can inspire multi-disciplinary projects. This was exemplified by the range of paddlers who took part: two Biggar High School students and their teacher, a storyteller, a photographer, a film-maker, an outdoor education researcher, four archaeologists, a member of the Scotland’s Urban past project, an architectural historian, a heritage facilitator and two instructors from the Scottish Outdoor Education Centres.
Here are some photos from the day, that sum up the canoe journey and launch events.
