Severn/ Rheidol catchment and north

In the upper part of the Banwy about a km before llanfair Caereinion around the footbridge there is a huge oak tree down. In the low scrape that we did today we could squeeze underneath it but if there was anymore water in the river it is a real hazard. Portage around would be really difficult with very steep banks either side.
Oak was still there today. The river was on 7 on the gauge under Llanerfyl Bridge so a coupla days or so off the flood. The river left channel past the tree was full so the strainer could be bypassed. You can see the tree a fair way before you get to it and can inspect/portage in the field river left if you want. It was an easy get out although I imagine it would be a steeper bank to negotiate at lower levels.
