Nearly all the boats in the moorings have left, some as early as 07:00. At the time of writing this (16:30) it still hasn't filled up again. It's now very quiet here.
|This was taken at around 10:00 this morning.|
I remember the first time we visited Horseshoe Falls I was expecting some height with water cascading from above. I was a little disappointed but the scenery there and on the way made up for it.
I see this time the Winter debris hasn't been cleared, and probably won't be. There's a dead sheep hanging on the weir, just thinking this water feeds into Hurleston Reservoir and is piped to Crewe!
The weir was built to dam the river and provide a supply of water for the canal and Hurleston Reservoir. There is an adjustable weir in the building which controls the flow of the water and nowadays a compressor pumping air into the water to oxygenate it.
|Loads of rubbish trapped behind the weir.|
