Jackfield Rapids Obstruction

Post by dccp » Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:30 pm

Today, 2nd September, there was an object like a scaffold pole in the rapid.
It is situated in the last two or three metres and right of centre.
Fortunately it is angled downstream but I don't know what else might be in there.

Today it could clearly be seen from the bank but could not be seen from a boat until too late! The pole was scoring about 50% at capsizing boats!
