Looks like the rowing boats at Wharfemeadows Park in Otley are due to make a comeback.
Clearly lots still to do before it actually happens, according to this story in the WO:

Funny thing health and safety....Doesn't seem that long ago when they were talking abut fencing off the riverbank here and yet it also seems a popular spot for people to indulge in wild swimming. My first experience in a rowing boat was on the river here in the early 1970s, a love of boating ensued and has lasted for 40 odd years..

The boat people have got a bit of a problem - their boats were dislodged from their moorings by a large tree. They went over the weir & for a time were stuck on an island. Some were last seen heading towards Harewood!

Good news - all boats & pedalos have been recovered. Some managed to get 30 miles downstream!

According to their Facebook page, they were open this weekend, mainly with pedalos. Lots of happy customers from the looks of it.
