Currently very high.

Had a run down from Nuttall about 45 mins ago. The bridge in Summerseat is a tight fit. The rivers still rising so be careful.

Theres also alot of over hanging trees causing problems. The worst is by the weir on the far, far side of the steps...where you'd want to run it at this level. We ran it just to the left of the tree (closer to the slope) was quite sticky and thats the steps.

Have fun.

The bridge in summerseat being the one with the restuarant/pub on top?


And which weir by the steps? Been a while since I paddled it and I am doing a run tommorrow from up that way.

Yep, that bridge- looked there about 6pm & it would have been a squeeze to get under. Sounds like Rick was talking about the big weir at the top of the Burrs site.
Forecast is drier overnight so should be at a great level tomorrow.

Thats right, the one with the restaurant/drug den on top.

And the weir at the Burrs section.
