Newark Weir Levels

Post by paddlersteve » Sat Nov 28, 2009 8:51 am

Anyone know if there is still a telephone line for the river Trent

The old river level line doesn't work anymore (0115 9615690)

Looking to see if Newark is likely to run this weekend?

Any local knowledge

Phone HPP, if the course is looking high, i.e. partly washed out then it should be good to go.
See you on the water!

The Phone line was run by the Environment Agency, but was shut down about a year ago.
I dont know if there are any plans to re open it, but i think the guys at Desperate Measures were talking about trying to convince the environment agency to re open the line, or provide the information in a different format, as all of the info is there, its just not easily accesable.

I paddled the weir towards the end of november, and it was the sweetest level ive ever seen!! the river left weir was super clean for spins, and river right was big and munchy but with a really fast shoulder for really fast blunts!

Lets hope the phone line re-opens soon!

Anyone have an idea what the mighty Newark Weir is doing at the moment, or what the likelihood of a cheeky session tomorrow (Sunday) would be?

Cheers, any info much appreciated.
