Rather low fairy glen, just below pipeline rapid, a number of years ago?
Actually, maybe not, too much bedrock for the spot Im thinking of... Unless the rockfalls are relatively recent...

Fairy Glen was my thought; I think I broke my nose about where the boat is in 1993 /94.

We should!

It's only taken me 5 years to get one right... now the worry of "too obscure that no-one gets it vs too easy that I've wasted my turn!!"

Will post one at lunchtime!

That looks a little like one of the weirs on the Avon, north of Stratford, in flood.

Water looks too clear for that and river too wide? It's not Stratford, Warwick Castle, Rock Mill or Saxon Mill.
It's got me stumped... but I'm guessing River Yeo.

I don't think I've paddled much in the Midlands but I'll guess the Irwell.
