The Brown Sign Torch Relay Day 41: White water rafting in Britain’s most landlocked county

The Olympic torch travels from Lincoln to Nottingham today and along the way passes through the town on Newark on Trent. I was happy to see that this town has a brown sign pointing a destination I haven’t featured on the alternative torch relay – a water sports centre. But this is no ordinary water sports centre, no no, this is The National Water Sports Centre. They say:

“Despite Nottinghamshire being the most land locked county in England, NWSC boasts some of the best white water and flat water you will find anywhere.  If you’re looking for fun, challenging and unique experiences and a choice of exciting courses, NWSC is for you.  We enjoy the services of sought after professional instructors who combine their experience with excellent customer care.  Whether you want to ride the rapids on our 700m purpose built white water course or simply laze away an hour or two boating on our 2km lake, there is an activity to suit you.”

A great sporty venue to share on the Brown Sign Torch Relay 🙂
