Welcome to the Dereham Canoe Group website. Dereham Canoe Group has been in existence since 1972 and operates in the Breckland area of Norfolk, which covers from just west of Norwich across to Swaffham in the west, and from Thetford in the south to North Elmham in the north.

Our principal paddling location is at Swanton Morley, where we have access to the River Wensum, using the two weirs when required.

The group is primarily family based and offers a broad spectrum of canoeing and kayaking activities, including training by our British Canoeing qualified coaches, competitions, pool training on the third Saturday in the month at Taverham Hall School swimming pool between September and April, and trips to various locations throughout the country.

If you or your family are interested in joining our club, please e-mail us at and we’ll send details to you
