Another Wezzit

Post by Big Henry » Mon Feb 09, 2015 7:37 pm

I went out for a drive and a wander today and found these two drops on a river, so where is it? (Click on the images to see the larger original pics)

Since its running roughly West to East, and the snow hasn't all gone I would aim for the Upper Wear or Tees end of the world.

Be careful on that bridge, it looks like some of the deck might be missing :)

Looks a bit like Mill Force on the Greta, a few hundred metres above the Gilmonby Bridge put-in?

That would be because it is! I assume it's been paddled?

I did it with a few others a few years back and have also mentioned it in guides. I'm sure plenty of others have run it.
