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:
Boats on River Wharfe, Otley
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!
